Tate Britain

Henry Moore ‘Recumbent Figure’ 1938, Tate Britain | Constructed from 3 pieces of stone, specifically chosen so that there contours compliment the shape of the figure

'The Tools' by Jim Dine. www.portfolio-oomph.com Online support covering all aspects of applying to art college.

I like this piece because it focuses on the handle, then it gradually fades out to the main part of the tool, it works well with the shading as it really focuses on the handle, attracting the eye of the viewer.

This charcoal drawing is one of Jim Dine's many beautiful drawings of tools. Jim Dine draws familiar, ordinary objects and gives them a life of their own. He treats the spaces in an around the objects with as much importance as the objects themselves and juxtaposes precise form with chaotic, yet controlled application of tone
