In a career spanning nearly forty years, sculptor Laddie John Dill has worked with Robert Rauschenberg and Roy Lichtenstein, won fellowships with the National Endowment of The Arts and the Guggenheim museum, and is included in the permanent collections at the Smithsonian Institute and the Museum of Modern Art.

A central figure in the California Light and Space movement, Dill produces luminous sculptures from sand, light, glass and various metals. He explains: “I was influenced by Rauschenberg, Keith Sonnier, Robert Smithson, Dennis Oppenheim, and Robert Irwin who were working with earth materials, light, and space as an alternative to easel painting.”
