Artist’s Talk: Lesley Dill, Wilderness: Light Sizzles Around Me
75 Russell Street
Lewiston, ME 04240
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, 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. The exhibition Lesley Dill, Wilderness: Light Sizzles Around Me features a uniquely inspired group of sculptures and two-dimensional works more than a decade in the making. The exhibition represents the ongoing investigation into the voices and personas of the American past by artist Lesley Dill.
