Georges Bergès Gallery is pleased to present a dual exhibition showcasing two masters of light and space in art: Laddie John Dill and Kristin Jai Klosterman.
Light and Space artist Laddie Dill began working to pioneer the minimalist movement in the 1970s, which was principally concerned with the effect of light and space on geometric form. He is internationally revered for his "Light Trap" sculptures, which are composed of polished aircraft aluminum and serve to literally "trap" the light from their environment, diffusing it brightly and evenly throughout. In this exhibition Dill will present light traps of dramatically varied sizes and colors.
Kristin Jai Klosterman worked with Dill in his studio for years. She has perfected her own way to play with light and space in an innovative and show-stopping way: through hanging metal sculptures that twist and turn, much like storms. Together, their works compliment each other perfectly and add a fascinating intrigue and brightness anywhere that they are placed.
