Jim Dine
Vintage Jim Dine Poster Galerie Kornfeld (Braid second state) black and white

$250

About

Poster produced on the occasion of Jim Dine’s 1973 exhibition at Galerie Kornfeld, Zurich. The artist’s 1973 etching Braid (second state) is reproduced on off-white, fine, laid paper, cut narrowly to enhance the proportions of the long braid. The surreal imagery in black and white contrasts nicely with bold black text. Jim Dine’s careful depiction of everyday objects imbues them with life: tools, hearts, robes, and hearts serve as frameworks for formal experimentation and as vessels for meaning. Nowhere is the artist’s love of drawing more evident than his etchings: Dine takes visible pleasure in the capacity to produce ultra-fine line work and inky depths. Hair is a recurrent motif in his work, sketched sprouting from tools, swirling in suggestive triangles or phallic bunches, growing wayward to obscure the face, and disembodied, as in Braid. Dine’s enjoyment seems to be twofold: immersing viewers in the pleasure and beauty of his line work, and then disrupting their perception of hair as an alluring symbol of health. See, he seems to say – it’s alive, growing where it shouldn’t be. Here, the shiny, healthy braid transforms to an abject talisman. This rare poster comes from our Petersburg Press archives where it has been stored since its publication.

About the Artist

Jim Dine

The Ohio-born artist Jim Dine brought his ever-shifting, multidisciplinary vision to New York in 1958, a time of transition in the American art world. Abstract Expressionism, which had dominated the scene for years, was on the wane, and a group of young artists, including Dine, Allan Kaprow, Jasper Johns and Robert Rauschenberg, was eager to replace it with a movement that flipped the traditional rules of art making on their head.Beyond dissolving the boundaries between mediums and genres, attaching found objects and detritus to their canvases, these revolutionaries began staging performative “happenings” in public spaces, redefining the very definition of a work of art. As Pop art took form, Dine used objects with personal significance, like his paintbrushes, to transform his paintings into two-dimensional sculptures. He was included in the Norton Simon Museum’s 1962 “New Painting of Objects,” often considered the first true Pop art exhibition in America, but he remained a chameleon, constantly changing his style, material and technique.More than his contemporaries, Dine has forged new paths in drawing, scrawling words and names across the canvas to create graphic, abstract landscapes. He is obsessed by certain motifs — such as hearts and his own bathrobe — which recur in various forms throughout his oeuvre. He has occasionally worked in classical genres, such as portraiture, as exemplified by the 1980 aquatint Nancy Outside in July. He has also co-opted the bold, graphic vocabulary of advertising and commercials, as in the sleek 2010 composition Gay Laughter at the Wake.
