JIM DINE (* 1935)

ARTIST INFO
Jim Dine (* 16. Juni 1935 in Cincinnati, Ohio)

 

Jim Dine is an American pop artist. Every heart that he painted is different and there is a similar sense of love in his „hearts“-works – his popular Series of Hearts is a powerful symbol of his own life.

  • Collectors can find Jim Dine’s work at Galerie Jeanne in Munich’s city center.

 

The American pop artist Jim Dine enrolled in art studies at the Art Academy of Cincinnati while still in high school. He studied at the School for the Museum of Fine Arts (Boston) and at Ohio State University. After studying from 1953 to 1958, Dine went to New York, where he exhibited and organized happenings with Claes Oldenburg, Marc Ratliff and Tom Wesselmann. Jim Dine has held numerous guest professorships since the 1960s.

 

The American pop artist Jim Dine underscores his works of painting, sculpture and graphics with poetry. He devotes himself to photography and stage design.

 

Coming from the pop scene, Jim Dine creates his own view of art and finds a metaphorical level that brings his works closer to the Abstract Expressionists.

 

 

Artistic work phases determine his art

A well-known cycle of works are his hearts, which, shaped by Jim Dine’s self-reflection, pose the question of the meaning of being human.

Jim Dine lives and works in New York and London.

Among Jim Dine’s many exhibitions, we would like to particularly emphasize his participation in the „documenta“ in Kassel – 1968: 4th documenta and 1977: documenta 6. It is the world’s most important event in the series of exhibitions on contemporary art. Equally interesting in the cycle of contemporary art exhibitions is the Venice Biennale, which Jim Dine attended in 1978. Among the solo exhibitions are „Walldrawing“ at the Kunstverein Ludwigsburg (1994) and „Jim Dine – My Tools“ at the SK Stiftung Kultur in Cologne (2014). Probably the most important exhibition on graphics under the title “Jim Dine. About the Love of Printing. Graphic 1960-2015″ was shown from 2015-2916 at the Museum Folkwang in Essen.

For a deeper understanding of the work of the artist Jim Dine, we would like to recommend David Shapiro’s book „Jim Dine, paint what you are“ (Stuttgart 1984).
