"The Blue Heart"

This is a contemporary piece created by Jim Dine in 2005.  "The Blue Heart" shows the characteristics of bright, contrasting blue, yellow, green and pink. The heart, which is an iconic image of Dine's paintings, appears to the eye as three - dimensional. Jim Dine is an artist that is contemporary but is also affiliated with the Pop Art movement in the early 1960s, however, Jim Dine prefers to emphasize the hands-on, gestural, and expressive in his work, rather than the mechanical and impersonal characteristics of Pop Art. Many of Jim Dine's works are hearts with pops of color or subtle color,  he also has pieces that are statuesque pieces that are also full of color and textures.
