JIM DINE, Tenaglia
Jim Dine was born in 1935 in Cincinnati in the United States. He attended art classes at Ohio University (1953-1957). Settled in New York in ’58, he immediately made his first “happenings”, and two years later held his first solo exhibition.
Since the beginning of his artistic career, Jim Dine pursues themes that will become recurrent as the self-portrait, the body, the memory; this constant research passes through painting, mixed media, sculpture, drawing or other means of expression.
The artist’s work is narrative and autobiographical. In 1962 Jim Dine participates in “New Realism”, the exhibition that consecrates Pop Art. In the ’60s his work presents a mythology of everyday life consisting of clothes, tools, hearts that want to be “like a vocabulary of feelings”.
