Jeff Koons Balloon Swan, 2019 is a synthesis of classical and contemporary imagery that gracefully harmonizes a sensual and playful energy. Inspired by the symbolism of a swan, closely associated with love and beauty, Koons develops a splendid tension between representation and abstraction. Executed in a brilliant magenta, this work combines the innocence of a child’s simple twisted balloon with male and female forms, in a bold statement defining beauty as sexual harmony. Koons, known for his fascination with the intersection of art, commerce and mass production redefines and celebrates the swan, a figure that has long had a personal significance for the artist.
American artist Jeff Koons (York, Pennsylvania 1955 - ) is internationally acclaimed for his ‘pop’ sculptures that elevate ordinary objects to artistic pieces designed to engage a broad range of viewers and, often, comment on American culture. Buoyed by the success of his iconic ‘Celebration’ series of monumental sculptures, Koons created a smaller series of Balloon Swan, Balloon Rabbit and Balloon Monkey. This limited edition work masterfully transforms each object to emulate the flawless and voluptuous appearance of an inflated ballon, twisted by unseen hands into a playful animal.
Created in 2019, this porcelain sculpture with chromatic coating is the latest release by Jeff Koons in his renowned balloon animal series. This work is signed by Jeff Koons (York, 1955 - ) and numbered from the edition of 999.
