Jeff Koons at David Zwirner, New York

Jeff Koons’ first exhibition with David Zwirner features a new series of sculptures inspired by lawn ornaments from the artist’s childhood. Koons places these reproduced reflective blue balls on plaster sculptures. The startling white figures and objects feature references to both antiquity and the modern world. The repitition of the blue spheres through the gallery offers a sense of order and contrast between mass production and intimacy. Gazing Ball is on view through June 29th 2013 at David Zwirner, 525 West 19th Street, New York. Photo and text Juliana Balestin
