Jim Dine

This is How I Remember, Now: PORTRAITS BY JIM DINE
Publisher's Description
Jim Dine may be best known for his prints, paintings and sculptural works—and for being one of the founders of Pop art—but he has also been making photographs since 1996. Most of the photographs are set up in the studio. Often featuring multiple exposures, Gothic imagery and automatic-writing-like text, they tend to convey a tinge of Surrealism. Dine has said about his practice,“I don’t use Photoshop with all the things you can do. I photograph and then I preview. I preview all day until I get it right, but I get it right by changing the objects.” For this volume, which will be eye-opening even to Dine’s most familiar fans, the artist has selected a group of self-portraits, portraits he has taken of friends and relatives—both alive and dead—and portraits of Pinocchio, the fictional character he has been reimagining for the last several years.
