Seven Views of the Hermaphrodite

Charcoal and chalk
24 3/4 x 18 1/2 inches

In 1990 Dine traveled to the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek in Copenhagen, where he spent seven days in the galleries to create this seven-part work, based on a statue of a hermaphrodite.

To highlight the subject's dual sexuality, antique sculptures of hermaphrodites typically display the figure in a complex, twisting pose. In each drawing, Dine depicted the figure from a different viewpoint. The sequence invokes the movement of the turning figure and its ability to define the space around it.
