Reception for the Artist

Light Traps & Contained Radiance: Coachella Valley
April 7 - 28, 2017


A central figure in the California Light and Space movement, Laddie John Dill has been crafting light and earthy materials like concrete, glass, sand, and metal into luminous sculptures, wall pieces, and installations since the 1970s. 

Referring to his choice of materials, Dill 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."

In the late 1960s Dill produced and exhibited a large number of delicate and eccentric "lines of light" made out of forged glass and agitated gas. Dill calls his reed-thin, ramrod-straight objects "Light Sentences." They are composed of discrete colored segments arranged in sequences, as if they were words comprising distinct phrases. 

Over the course of his fifty-year career, Dill’s artwork has been exhibited worldwide, including recent exhibitions in Europe and the United States.  His “Light and Sand Installation” is currently on view at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.

In addition to meeting the artist and viewing his work, visitors to CODA Gallery during First Friday Art Walk will enjoy live music as well a wine bar, which benefits Animal Samaritans and features wines from Organic Wine Exchange. A percentage of the evening's art sales will also be donated to support Animal Samaritan's very worthy projects.
