Threadbare:

A Subversive Aesthetic

 

 

Lesley Dill

Lesley Dill's hands call out to us, outstretched and yearning, they offer supplications we feel within us as well as those we might encounter any day on the street. Her 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.
