Jim Dine – Night Fields, Day Fields | Sculpture
"Night Fields, Day Fields" is a survey of Jim Dine’s sculpture from 1959 to 2009.
Dine is commonly seen as a prolific painter, printmaker and photographer whose central practice is drawing, but this book shows that sculpture is just as important in his oeuvre.
Here we discover Dine’s favourite and reoccurring motifs: hearts, tools, skulls, and Pinocchio, as well as Classical sculpture in the form of Venus de Milo and Winged Victory.
Dine’s media are as diverse as his themes and include bronze, wood, glass and found objects. His styles are similarly manifold, testament to an artist who has shrugged off the trappings of Pop Art to develop an eclectic body of styles that is unique and authoritative in contemporary art.
