Artist of the moment…..Lesley Dill

Lesley Dill was born in Bronxville, New York  in the year 1950. For her collegiate education Dill attended Trinity College located in Hartford, Connecticut. For her masters degree she attended the Maryland Institute of Art located in Baltimore, Maryland. Like the previous entry Jutai Toonoo, Lesley Dill enjoys using text on her wonderful dresses made from paper. She blends a feminist point of view with that of modern culture. She works in many mediums including photography, sculpture, printmaking, and has recently ventured into performance art and conceiving and directing operas.

During college she earned a bachelor of arts degree in English, a good reason for her to add text in her art, from Trinity College. She earned a masters in teaching from Smith College. In addition Dill earned a Masters of Fine Arts degree from the Maryland Institute College of Art.

Dill has been the winner of many awards and grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Rockefeller Foundation, and the New York Foundation for the Arts.

In this clip be sure and catch the beginning. I like the idea of hanging art from the ceiling, it made me feel like a kid when everything is that way! We see more of Lesley Dill’s art work in this clip from the Palmer Museum of Art. One subject I love in all mediums is the hand and Dill uses the hand in a very creative manner in her work.

In this clip from the Hunter Museum we visit a show for Lesley Dill:
