Jeff Koons “Gazing Ball”, Gagosian Gallery 21st Street, 2015

December 11, 2015

Gagosian Gallery presents a new series of paintings by Jeff Koons entitled Gazing Ball… In this series, Koons is in dialogue with artists of the past, such as Titian, El Greco, Courbet, and Manet, among others. The works deal with the power of artistic gesture. Each work has a blue glass gazing ball that sits on a painted aluminum shelf attached to the front of the painting. The viewer and the painting are reflected in the gazing ball. 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, as in ancient times.
