Like the Pop artists of the early 1960s with whom he is closely associated, Dine incorporates images of everyday objects in his art: hands, hearts, skulls, tools, robes, trees, and flowers. Unlike the Pop artists' impersonal treatment of consumer culture, however, Dine's objects carry personal significance to the point of being autobiographical. Celebrated for his theatrical happenings, he has also worked in painting ,drawing, sculpture, printmaking, and photography.
