JIM DINE "GLOVES" LITHO, 1970
Unlike Roy Lichtenstein or Andy Warhol, Jim Dine (b. 1935) explores and appropriates the tools and icons of modern life - but typically renders them in an affectionate manner void of any irony or cynicism.
Perhaps he has more in common with an artist like Wayne Thiebaud then he is usually given credit for.
In Dine's work, he takes ubiquitous and familiar forms as the basis for bold and colorful compositions that flirted with abstraction.
He plays with language, word associations and representation - but always creating a work that is playful and joyous.
As a result he has become one of the key artists that defines American Pop Art.
In "GLoves" Dine applies his signature rainbow palette to the word LOVE which - crowns the composition, implying that love can is the force that can rise above the darkness.
