Widely regarded as one of the most influential artists of the postwar era, Jeff Koons has tested the boundaries between modern art and mass culture and help transform the relationship of artists to the cult of celebrity and the global market. Last week, Koons opened his latest self-titled exhibition at Almine Rech‘s Mayfair outpost. The all-new collection of work features items from Koons’ Antiquity series as well as a number of paintings.Mirrors from the very beginning have played an essential role in almost all of Jeff Koons’s work, which is why each oil-based painting in the series is paired with a mirrored hand-blown blue globe. ‘The painting is reflected, and you’re reflected into it – you become part of the painting, it takes you back in time’.
You can check out Koons’ latest works at Almine Rech from now until January 21, 2017.
