Working with Jim Dine is an incredible experience. Since he has collaborated with master printers the world over, I am honoured by his enthusiasm in working with us. Since 2003, we have made more than 200 works together, many in monumental formats. His vigour, inventiveness and irreverence vis-à-vis the printing process make our sessions as unpredictable as they are exciting. He frequently recycles and reworks his old matrices to create new prints, combining traditional techniques with the use of power tools, from grinders to Dremel drills and chainsaws.
Our most recent woodcuts mark a radical shift in his work: he has eliminated his iconic motifs (heart, crow, bathrobe, Pinocchio…) to make gestural abstractions in vivid colour.
