2005

About

"Meaning is in us already, waiting to wake up," said Lesley Dill (b. 1950). "I feel grateful for waking up through words." The New York artist works in a wide variety of media—sculpture, performance, printmaking, drawing, and photography—but each work explores the power of language. In Dill's 2005 lithograph collage, Woman With Hindi Healing Dress, a figure wears a swirling skirt covered in cascading Hindi text. Even if you can't read the language, the threaded compositional elements and serene palette communicate everything you need to know. This is an artwork imbued with the spirit of a healer. The work reflects Dill’s love of the written language and her time spent living in India which is apparent in the Hindi script printed on the figures dress. The piece incorporates ideas around feminism and the female form. This piece highlights the artist’s non-traditional approach to printmaking, notably her three-dimensional works. The Hindi Dress is a lithograph print that has been collaged to the background. The figure’s head torso and feet are also collaged and there is saffron thread that is stitched over the top of the piece leaving loose threads gently hanging down the piece. The piece is framed in an acrylic box which allows the viewer to peer at the figure from multiple angles to observe the intricate folds and delicate details of the work. Woman with Hindi Healing Dress created in 2005 is a mixed-media lithograph. The piece measures 8.5 x 12.5 inches and the box frame measures 10.5 x 14.25 inches. The piece is numbered from an edition of 150. It is signed, numbered, and dated by the artist in graphite. Lesley Dill, Woman with Hindi Healing Dress, 2005, edition of 150, lithograph, collage, plexi box, 14.75 x 10.62 x 2.25 in
