Jim Dine tools are a theme central to the artist’s historical body of work. Dine’s focus on tools is connected to his family’s hardware store in Cincinnati, Ohio. Tools are symbolic; they are integral elements in the human creations which break boundaries. Every sky-scraper, piece of furniture, and airplane was created with the use of tools.

Throughout Dine’s oeuvre, tools have been powerfully presented.
