BIOGRAPHY:
Painter/sculptor Laddie John Dill was born in Long Beach, California in 1943. He graduated from Chouinard Art Institute, Los Angeles, in 1968 with a BFA degree.After graduation from Chouinard, Dill worked as a printing apprentice with Pop artists Robert Rauschenberg, Claus Oldenberg, Roy Lichtenstein and Jasper Johns (with whom he lived in the 1970s).Dill was influenced by Rauschenberg, Keith Sonnier, and environmental artists Robert Smithson, Dennis Oppenheim and Robert Irwin, who were exploring alternatives to easel painting.In 1968, Dill created installations composed of glass, neon and sand, which appeared to be aerial views of landscape in a horizontal format. In 1971, Dill had his first one-man exhibit at the Sonnabend Gallery in New York.Through experimentation his work took on a fresh format bounded by straight lines with the addition of architectonic shapes. In 1975, the format was vertical, suggesting "a figurative reference achieved by a more formal architectural structuring." Two years later he was working on a vertical "Door" series.Later paintings fused both landscape and architectural imagery. Dill was working with cement polymer, glass, silicone and oil on canvas. He has also made drawings in pastel, oil and graphite on rag paper. In addition to carving cement, Dill filled a room in his studio with 10,000 pounds of silica sand, using brooms and shovels to move it around in the creation of his version of an art work.
