Jeff Koons: Gazing Ball Paintings

Jeff Koons: Gazing Ball Paintings

  Published as an accompaniment to the 2015 exhibition at Gagosian Gallery in New York, this new book depicts Jeff Koons' new Gazing Ball Paintings and the resulting dialogue he creates with artists of the past, from Titian to El Greco, Courbet to Manet.     Dealing with the power of artistic gesture, each work, presented here in stunning color, features a blue glass gazing ball that sits on a painted aluminum shelf attached to the front of the painting that reflects both the painting and the viewer. This metaphysical occurrence connects the viewer to a family of cultural history in real time. Through the simple act of placing a gazing ball in front of the images, painting and sculpture are reunited for maximum sensory perception. New essays by Joachim Pissarro and Donatien Grau complete this striking new book.

The title originates from the mirrored ornaments frequently found on lawns in residential neighborhoods, including around Koons' childhood home in Pennsylvania. In these works, blue gazing balls, hand blown from glass, have been placed on white plaster sculptures depicting signature examples of antique statues from the Greco-Roman era, including the Farnese Hercules and the Esquiline Venus, along with everyday utilitarian objects encountered in today's suburban landscape, such as rustic mailboxes, a birdbath and an inflatable snowman typically seen outside during Christmas. As Francesco Bonami notes in his catalogue essay, "while all of the sculptures are grounded in their own distinct narratives, derived from art history and suburban towns, the seemingly fragile and delicate gazing ball establishes that sense of uncertain equilibrium that exists between history and fantasy, magic and materiality, mass culture and exclusive beauty." Created in close collaboration with Koons, this elegant publication, which echoes the classic design of a 1970 Picasso catalogue admired by the artist, is the first to survey these works. Exquisitely produced color plates c...
