Lesley Dill is one of the most prominent American artists working at the intersection of language and fine art. Her elegant sculptures, art installations, mixed-media photographs, and evocative performances draw from both her travels abroad and profound interests in spirituality and the world’s faith traditions. Exploring the power of words to cloak and reveal the psyche, New York-based Dill invests new meaning in the human form. Intellectually and aesthetical engaging, the core of her work emerges from an essential, visionary awareness of the world. Her multi-faceted work appeals to a wide range of interests. This exhibition, curated by Whatcom Museum Curator of Art, Barbara Matilsky, has traveled to a couple of select museums in the US.
