Making use of conceptual constructs including the ancient, the everyday, and the sublime, Koons creates luxurious icons and elaborate tableaux, which, beneath their captivating exteriors, engage
the viewer in a metaphysical dialogue with cultural history. – Gagosian Beverly Hills
Sooooo… I stopped into Gagosian Beverly Hills to see the new works by Jeff Koons. This was from the Gazing Ball and #Celebration sculpture series. Not too impressed. It’s almost as if the shine was trying to make up for the lack of substance in the work. I know Jeff Koons fans hate these sentiments but it is what it is. Maybe I just don’t get contemporary art. It’s possible.
