JIM DINE “PINNOCHIO” SCREENPRINT, 2008
Jim Dine (b. 1935) was one of the original artists that defined Pop Art in the 1960s and redirected American art away from abstraction by including depictions of objects and items from daily life.
Like Jasper Johns and Andy Warhol, Dine embraces quintessential American images and icons. He uses recognizable forms as the basis for bold and colorful compositions that flirt with abstraction.
Over the succeeding decades, Dine has become most well-known for his painting and printmaking of ubiquitous everyday objects like bathrobes, neckties, hearts, and tools reducing them to their essence or transforming them into abstract allusions.
Pinnochio is among the most frequented subject matter in Dine’s oeuvre, often using the character as a portal for self-discovery. His fascination dates back to the first time he watched the Disney classic in 1941 when he was only 6 years old.
This screenprint is exemplary of Dine’s depiction of Pinnochio over the years. Bold primary colors are contained by strong contour lines, highlighting Dine’s innate ability to create texture and impact within printmaking. Pinnochio faces away from the viewer, showcasing his profile (and elongated nose) that suggests he might have been caught in a mischievous act.
In 2006, 44 of Dine’s Pinnochio-inspired lithographs were published alongside short stories by Carlo Collodi, the original creator of Pinnochio, whose ominous portrayal of the character inspired Dine’s work over the years.
