Lesley Dill


American artist Lesley Dill works in many different mediums, where she combines text and the human form. Her works are often inspired by poetry from Emily Dickinson, Franz Kafka, Salvador Espriu, Tom Sleigh, and others. Her various interests and combinations result in a variety of figural and layered imagery. In her early works, her figures are fairly literal, yet she adds poetry to create multilayered images rich with meaning. At times, Dill pushes the use of the figure to extremes-disembodied heads, hands, and dresses intertwined with words and phrases populate her compositions.
