These are the two pieces selected as part of the California Open Exhibition at TAG. Below are a few words from Laddie John Dill's Statement concerning his jury process.
As an artist looking at the submissions for the show, I considered if those pieces appeared to be part of an entire body of work rather than a one-shot deal. In general, I wanted to see that the artist had really investigated the possibilities for that body of work. I selected work that I thought would allow the viewer to get into the process of making the piece—to view those choices that had concerned the artist in producing their work of art.
