Lesley Dill: Faith and the Devil

September 8–December 11, 2015

Art Expo Walk Reception: September 18, 5-9 PM

Wabash Arts Corridor (WAC) Crawl: October 23, 5-9PM

This large-scale installation investigates the philosophical and existential conundrums of evil and underlying faith in the world. The source and lynchpin for this investigation is Big Gal Faith, an eight-foot tall female figure centered in the gallery. Her wild word hair and lavish twenty-six foot wide dress of drawn images and words express the main themes of the exhibit: cruelty and violence, lust, forgiveness, reflection, and transcendence. Big Gal Faith is accompanied by a word-covered androgynous figure representing Lucifer, with words of hate on his front and words of joy on his back. Mural-size drawings accompany Big Gal Faith and Lucifer, as dense forests of interlocking words and images stenciled on fabric function as a theater backdrop.
