I have come to terms with a lot of things, because, when all’s said and done, there’s really very little one can do about a lot of things. You just accept them. The point is you just have to keep on working and you just have to keep on living.

Jim Dine

Car Crash #4

A leader of the Pop Art Movement, Jim Dine first studied at the University of Cincinnati, The Boston Museum of Fine Arts School and the University of Ohio. His first exhibition was with fellow artist and co-collaborator, Claes Oldenburg in 1959. In the Dadaist style, Dine used mixed media and the ready-made to produce his paintings. He began experimenting with performance art in the 1950’s. His later work is a return to traditional painting techniques incorporated with collage, printing, etching, and paper-making.
