"This Goofy Life of Constant Mourning"
by sabine7 / August 14, 2005


Jim Dine has long been an important innovator in the world of pop art, often incorporating text into his paintings, drawings and collages. This Goofy Life of Constant Mourning is the title of his most recent book, a visual poem that spans a career of art. Dine has photographed the poetry he has written on walls and on objects to create one continuous flow through the body of the work. The Dine oeuvre is well represented, the usual suspects are all present and accounted for: bathrobes, hearts, Venus statues and tools.
Clothbound, 296 pages, 181 colour illustrations, $50.40 at Amazon.
