I Heard a Voice: The Art of Lesley Dill Play

Dills work can be both ephemeral and spiritual, drawing on both her travels in India and her interest in Buddhism, as she uses bronze, photography, poetry, thread, wire and paper to sculpt figures and build tapestries. Her pieces give visual form to poetic texts by Emily Dickinson, Salvador Espriu, and Franz Kafka. For Dill, words are her spiritual armor,and she freely stitches and weaves them across the surfaces of her multi-layered works.

As she states, "language is the touchstone, the pivot point of all my work."

The Hunter exhibition will include 34 pieces from both public and private collections. Some of the sculptures have been created for this exhibit tour, and many have not been shown widely before. A full-color catalog and a video featuring Dill in her studio will accompany the exhibition.
