Jim Dine: This Is How I Remember Now Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 Pinochio, the fictional character he has been reimagining for the last several years.

Synopsis:

Introduction by Gabriele Conrath-Scholl. Text by Susanne Lange, Jim Dine.

Synopsis:

This book is a selection of photographs of the artist himself, friends (dead and alive), relatives, and the wooden boy (soon to be a real boy) Pinocchio. Jim Dine is attempting in these works to bring, through memory, to life the people around him now and from the past. He has found a way to put aside mortality by the way the camera continually lies.

About the Author

Born in 1935 in Cincinnati, Ohio, Jim Dine completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts at the University of Ohio in 1957, and has since become one of the most profound and prolific contemporary artists. Dine's unparalleled career spans fifty years and his work is held in numerous private and public collections. His books at Steidl include Birds (2001), The Photographs, so far (2003) and Hot Dream (52 Books) (2008).
