Lesley Dill is an artist who is obsessed with words. Many of Dill's works of art are completely comprised of words, as they either shape an outfit or the ropes to hang a human-like effigy.

With her usage of words, Lesley Dill's work is poignant and stunning. My favorite art piece is titled 'Sounds of War.' In this particular sculpture, Dill depicts a blackened ear with waves of nonsensical words and skeletons pouring into the eardrum.
