These three drawings, made from photographs of sculptures from the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek in Copenhagen, demonstrate the artist's physical approach to draftsmanship. Using large sheets of thick handmade paper, he applied his media in a highly gestural manner. Vigorously reworking each image, Dine exploited the expressive effects of accumulation, abrasion, and erasure.
