Lesley Dill

Lesley Dill's work explores the relationship between the body and language.  She uses all different materials such as hair, fiber, bronze, wood, and paper to explore the idea of sculpture.  She is constantly redefining her work by pushing new methods of working such as performance art. Her studio is located in Brooklyn and ladies and gentlemen I am going to be working there too this summer. Couldn't be more exciting.  To see more of her work, visit her website,

Nene Humphrey

 Nene Humphrey is an artist who currently works out of her studio in Brooklyn, NY.  In her work Plain Sense of Things and Circling the Center she explores the psychological process of mourning and its physiological index in the mourner's brain.  Following the death of her husband, she has been very interested in recording brain activity in the part of the brain where emotions reside. Through drawing, media installation, braiding, and other fibrous processes, she successfully explores the idea of mourning through her artwork.  

Make sure to look at more of these series on her current website.
OR some of her older work from the 70s, 80s, 90s, and 2000s here on artnet.

I have the lovely opportunity of getting to work in her studio this summer and be included in her process and I could not be more excited to work for such a talented and driven lady.
