Jeff Koons | Carracci Flower

Jeffrey Koons is an American artist recognised for his work dealing with popular culture and his sculptures depicting everyday objects, including balloon animals produced in stainless steel with mirror-finish surfaces.

Jeff Koons, along with seven other leading international artists, were asked to create a print to celebrate Tate Modern’s 21st anniversary. 

With his print for Tate 21 Koons continues his dialogue with classical artists of the past, in this instance with the Italian painter Annibale Carracci (1560–1609), one the most admired artist of his time and a vital force in the creation of Baroque style.

Derived from one of Carracci’s series of erotic etchings known as the Lascivie and delineated in silver foil is a partial image of a female nude figure and her companion. Intertwined with this line is a flowing, looping ribbon of celebratory blue foil, a colour similar in hue to the blue glass balls that adorn Koon’s recent Gazing Balls. At times the silver foil catches the light from a certain directions, bringing the female figure into sharp relief, while at others the two foil lines combine with the dreamy background landscape to offer a more sensory abstract experience.

One of the most famous artists working today, Jeff Koons has been exhibited in galleries and museums across the globe. Major exhibitions include the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Guggenheim, the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, The Pompidou and more.
