WILDERNESS: Words are where what I catch is me

Brooklyn-based artist Lesley Dill’s work reflects the poetry, prose, and declaration of early New England figures such as John Brown, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Anne Hutchinson, Sojourner Truth and Walt Whitman. The exhibition also includes Emily Dickinson, whose poetry initially triggered Dill’s assimilation of text into her art. The long, thin figures appearing in Dill’s work wear the strength of the words of the people they represent.
