The Art of Sculpted Drawings

 


Painter, sculptor, poet, and draftsman, Jim Dine (American, born 1935) began his career in the early 1960s, participating in Happenings and the Pop Art movement. In the 1970s, draftsmanship became central to his practice, and in the 1980s he began a sustained series of drawings based on ancient sculpture.

These images are part of this sculpture series and can be found in his book Jim Dine: Drawing from the Glyptothek.

Skeletal


































Inspired by the life-drawing classes I am currently taking,  we are learning to see through the body to the form underneath. It is really fascinating, I think I could spend my days doing it.

Colour Theory
























These images (I can't take credit for any of them) are beautiful as solos but the impact colour-wise when they are combined is quite startling.  The colours bounce and intertwine with ease and they are visually stimulating.  I have purposely kept the images small in scale so the viewers eye automatically sees the chromatic relationship.  If you would like to see the images separately simply give them a click.

Back to Back


























































There is such beauty to be seen in the natural shapes, sizes and shadows created by the human body. Vulnerabilities and emotions can be expressed by a movement or glance. Unfortunately I have misplaced the name of the sculptor from the top image but I can tell you the last image is of my work, the fish bones representing a woman's vertebral column. The image is by photographer Rob Lamb and the work will be on exhibit at the Knitting and Stitching Show in Simmonscourt, RDS, Dublin in November.
