Jim Dine | Recent Work
APRIL 25 – JUNE 14, 2013
Focusing on his iconic heart imagery, Dine has created a new vision of this well-regarded subject through an innovative exploration of materials and technique.
This group of hearts and robes embodies Dine’s recent melding of Pop with abstraction, adding a complex and assertive dimensional surface. A luscious mixture of acrylic paint, charcoal and sand on canvas and wood yields a sensual texture beaming with rich and provocative bursts of color. All works in this most recent series provide an uplifting mood of sheer energy.
