Introduction

Luke Stavenuiter Jim Dine In this sculpture Dine takes normal everyday tools and adds a fun and colourful edge to them. Although ?Five Feet of Colorful Tools? is simple it does bring out the normal tools and gives them a vibrant look. It is very Pop-Art based, using a simple idea and lots of block simple colours. This would be a piece that would be displayed in an art expedition, as it is big and experimental, so would attract the attention of most people that are visiting. In the piece Dine has hung up a multitude of assorted tools like saws and hammers, as you would find on any normal workbench. ...read more.

This gives it a very vibrant look and draws all you?re attention up to the small part at the top of the massive 1.5m x 1.5m sculpture rather than the blank bottom of the canvas. Behind all the coloured tools Dine has stencilled on outlines of tools in random potions but all hanging down like the other objects. The silhouettes look like an object has been placed there earlier whilst Dine spray diffused it leaving a blank spot where the tool once was. This background gives the illusion of another layer of tools behind the first one. Light is being shone onto the sculpture head on casting shadows behind the tools giving it further depth behind them. ...read more.

Conclusion

This piece was made in 1962 and was part of a phase when he was part of a group during the time that was linked with the Pop-Art movement. I will use the style of Jim Dine?s work in my final exam piece. He uses a spray diffused background with silohets of the tools he uses as stensils. I will create a 2-D piece with stensiled silohets on a spray diffused background, and then in my own styles which I have tested and progressed in my trial pieces, I will work back into the silohets in a range of different medium. It wont have the 3-D part but it will be in the style. I will also use his block colour style using a few colours for each tool and adding detail in through pencil or pen. ...read more.
