About The Artist

American artist Jim Dine is best known for his bright and expressive paintings. Dine is widely considered a Pop artist, thanks to his inclusion in two major 1962 exhibitions: “New Realists” at the Sidney Janis Gallery and “New Painting of Common Objects” at the Norton Simon Museum, both of which featured Andy Warhol, James Rosenquist and Roy Lichtenstein. However, Dine resists this interpretation, stating that his style is more subjective than the deadpan style of Pop Art. Hugely prolific, Dine works across sculpture, paintings, performance, drawings, illustration and poetry.

Born in Cincinnati, Ohio, in 1935, Dine studied at the Cincinnati Arts Academy and subsequently, the Boston Museum School and Ohio University, graduating in 1957. He moved to New York where, along with figures such as Claes Oldenburg and Allan Kaprow, he first established himself as a pioneer in the ‘Happenings’ scene. Around this time he began working with found materials, incorporating them into assemblages. He then embarked upon his now iconic series exploring particular motifs such as robes–which signify a kind of self-portrait–and hearts, which for Dine serve as a symbol of genuine feeing. This emotive tendency in Dine’s work can be traced back to his immersion in Abstract Expressionism as a student, a style which conveyed the powerful, emotional content through color and spontaneous brushwork. For this reason, he is also considered a progenitor of the Neo-Expressionist movement.

Other everyday objects, such as shoes, ties, toothbrushes and showers recurred throughout Dine’s work in the 1960s. The artist often reworks the same image in multiple media, exploiting the technical variety of his medium, until a generic subject becomes unique, invested with his deeply personal touch. The sensitive way in which Dine handles these simple, very ordinary, subjects elevates the mundane to the remarkable. Professing a kinship with his tools, he described them as “objects of affection” due to their union of form and function and once famously exclaimed of them, “Sometimes I can almost go to my knees, it’s so beautiful!”

Dine’s work is included in prominent international collections including the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), New York Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam; Museum Ludwig, Cologne; Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Humlebæk; Tate, London; National Gallery of Canada - Musée des beaux-arts du Canada, Ottawa; Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney; Hara Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo; and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
