Gagosian, New York
9th May – 29th June
JEFF KOONS, Antiquity 3, 2009–11, Oil on canvas, 102 x 138 inches (259.1 x 350.5 cm)
With sources as diverse as children’s art, comic-book characters, and figures from antiquity, Jeff Koons continues to draw a common thread through cultural history, creating works that attempt to touch the core of the human psyche. Working through conceptual constructs including the new, the banal, and the sublime, he has taken his work from its literal, deadpan beginnings in readymades to baroque creations that extol innocence, beauty, sexuality, and happiness in confounding combinations of abstraction, figuration, sumptuous effect, and pure spectacle.
