The exhibition features around 80 analogue photographs created by the artist between 2001 and 2013. The prints are part of the SK Foundation's own holdings.
With his series 'Tools', Jim Dine references a life-long experience with manual tools – a theme he has addressed in a multitude of media for previous artistic projects. Fascinated by the materiality, form, colours and symbolism of practical objects, he uses them to enhance his visual world, continuously encouraging the viewer to develop new perspectives.
Jim Dine has been involved in photography since the 1960s. Initially, he was a collector – later (and to this day), photography served as an inspiration for his paintings. Since the 1990s, Jim Dine – who is most famous for his paintings, sculptures and graphics – has practiced photography as an artistic medium in its own right.
