LESLEY DILL SHOW ON DISPLAY THROUGH APRIL 26TH

Lesley Dill’s work is characterized by the complex interweaving of a wide range of materials, image and text. Her constructions are suffused with emotional content. Language is a defining element in her work providing context and reference. The psyche and its relation to poetry and to the self are also core elements in Lesley Dill’s work. Her original syntheses of text and image combine language and the human body with a unique emotional directness.
