SALT and the Dress
An Installation by Lesley Dickman

Salt and the Dress raises concerns about rising water levels and desalination. Established painter Lesley Dickman extends her art practice with this installation, continuing her interest in textural qualities with the use of white muslin and salt. A soft aesthetic initially disguises elements of discomfort in Salt and the Dress, like a chameleon it has its disguises…

Graduating with a degree in Fine Art from Monash University, Gembrook’s artist Lesley Dickman has since developed a career spanning graphic design, painting, performance and teaching. Exhibiting since 1981 Dickman’s style and content has evolved to include textiles and installation media successfully pushing her theories beyond the canvas.
