Lobster Time

A while ago I bought the book with the retrospective of the work
of American artist Jeff Koons.
I like his over the top and humorous style of work.
World, in his eyes, is just a giant playground, full of kitsch elements.
You really can relax while looking at it, because it's translated in a non-aggressive way.
Even heavily sexual content is being reduced to minimum by placing it next to it's opposite.
Koons is one of the greatest postmodern artist, in my opinion.

Here're a few snapshots of my favorite pieces.

A funny coincidence that occurred was that I found a lobster brooch at an antique art market in Brussels, the same day that I bought the book. Not only is a lobster brooch hard to find, but finding it at the same time with this book... Has to be nothing but destiny :)

  4. Lijkt me een superboek om te hebben, Sabina! :)
    wij zagen zijn werk in het middelbaar tijdens esthetica
    en moesten een werk uit Made in Heaven, van hem bespreken en verwerken
    mijn ma was in shock toen ze die tekeningen/foto's zag :p
