For this spring's IFPDA online fair, JONATHAN NOVAK CONTEMPORARY ART is honored to present an important collection of JIM DINE editions. This group of works displays the extraordinary range of Dine's creative process in printmaking. From monumental works including one that is over eleven feet in length to those smaller than two feet, these works are notable examples of Jim's most iconic images—hearts, robes, tools, Venus, self-portraits, and full abstractions. Inspired by his childhood workman’s background and his youth spent in his grandparents' hardware store in Cincinnati, Dine has proven fearless in his experimentation with innovative techniques including lithography, etching, woodcut, silkscreen, collage and hand painting. Known for his graphic style, complex layering of saturated colors, and iconic imagery, Dine has been prolific in creating fine editions since the early 1960s. Dine states that he enjoys the social nature of print-making because a team of artisans is required to complete the work whereas painting is a solitary pursuit. Dine made his first print at the age of seventeen and continues to create compelling and complex prints in the present day.
