"I speak about the night, because I'm very respectful of it as a source of power and of information about one's own self. I trust the unconscious and it needs to be respected. I have years when I don't remember what I've dreamt in a profound way. I've had forty years of analysis, on and off, I mean straight I've had twenty. Without it I wouldn't be standing up. And besides art and Diana, it has saved me. And it's all of a piece, because they all have nourished my soul, and it's a soul, if I can speak impersonally about it, that really needs nourishing."
Jim Dine, excerpted from Jim Dine: The Photographs, So Far, published by Steidl/Wesleyan University and Davison Art Center.

Jim Dine Printmaker: Leaving My TracksJim Dine Printmaker: Leaving My Tracks

Published by MFA Publications.
Text by Clifford S. Ackley, Patrick Murphy.

Best known for his monumental images of bathrobes, tools and hearts that became icons of Pop art during the 1960s and 70s, Jim Dine remains one of the most inventive and prolific printmakers of our time. His prints currently number some 1,000 items, and at age 75, he continues to produce new works with remarkable zest and boundless energy. Dine’s prints are rooted in the spontaneous, gestural aesthetic of American Abstract Expressionism. Intensely physical in execution, they celebrate the artist’s touch. He supplements his energetic, full-body strokes not only by hand coloring but also by collaging with nontraditional media. He may also subtract, scratching or even gouging his surfaces, sometimes with power tools. The results show his great joy in working with the thick paper and rich inks and colors, or in the artist’s words, his love for “leaving my tracks.” Jim Dine Printmaker: Leaving My Tracks explores Dine’s etchings, woodcuts, lithographs and illustrated books from the last 50 years, drawing from the prints at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, where the artist has created an archive of his life’s work. Some 160 lush full-color images, along with text based on conversations between the artist and MFA curator Clifford S. Ackley, offer an intimate look into Dine’s deeply personal approach to his favorite subject matter.

Jim Dine: Walking Memory 1959-1969Jim Dine: Walking Memory 1959-1969

Published by Guggenheim Museum.
Edited by Germano Celant and Clare Bell. Interview by Julia Blaut.

Jim Dine is one of America's best-known image-makers. This book, published to accompany the first major exhibition of Dine's work from the 1960s, reproduces a broad selection of his early mixed-media works, paintings and sculptures. Many of the works featured in this volume contain elements of the now-familiar themes of Dine's career: tools, robes, hearts, palettes and domestic interiors. Bringing together fascinating performance photographs with vivid full-color reproductions, the book is the first to explore the complex relationship between Dine's mixed-media works and his environments and theater pieces.

Jim Dine Prints, 1985-2000Jim Dine Prints, 1985-2000

A Catalogue Raisonne

Published by The Minneapolis Institute of Arts.
By Elizabeth Carpenter with an essay by Joseph Ruzicka. Foreword by Richard Campbell and Evan M. Maurer.

One of the most recognizable of American artists, and one of America's most innovative printmakers, Jim Dine has created a multidisciplinary oeuvre tied together by his continued use and reinvention of familiar imagery. Hearts, bathrobes, skulls, tools, the Crommelynck gate, Venus de Milo, self-portraits, plants, and flowers--Dine infuses these personal metaphors with new meanings and continually depicts them in novel and diverse contexts. Over time, some of these motifs have become recognized as clearly symbolic: the bathrobe figures as a self-portrait, the heart as a symbol of his love for wife Nancy. And also over time, Dine has added new images to his iconic repertory. Mountains, ancient Greco-Roman sculpture, owls, hands, trees, apes, Pinocchio, and ravens figure prominently in the prints he has made since 1985. This catalogue raisonne fully documents Dine's evolving imagery and technical experimentation from the late 80s through the millennium, including his limited-edition illustrated books, and establishes his absolute maturity as an artist. A glossary of printmaking terms, a selected print exhibition history and bibilography, and a discussion of his poetry and literary leanings make this catalog complete.
