Guy Dill

San Francisco, CA

“Guy Dill (b. 1946) is one of the world's most prolific contemporary masters of abstract sculptural works. His bronze, aluminum and marble sculptures draw upon the vocabularies developed by Anthony Caro and David Smith. Guy Dill has, for the construction of welded geometric form, forged new terrain. The geometric building blocks that form the beginning of his sculptures are slabs, squares, cutout circles, and beams. Choosing organic vitality over a strict adherence to pure geometry, Dill continues to eschew the strict vertical/horizontal coordinates and right-angle junctions that are critical to locking compositions together, orienting them to the ground. Dill's works celebrate movement. His refined sculptures are sexy sleek and industrial. They are masculine yet graceful and beautiful without a hint of whimsy. Guy Dill;s sculptures have been collected and exhibited in significant institutions as the Museum of Modern Art, New York, The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, The Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, and the Smithsonian, to name a few.”
