Jeff Koons - Paddle ball game

Description
Jeff Koons - Paddle ball game
Mixed media - Artist's stamp - 900 - 2000

Since his famous Banality series from 1988, Jeff Koons has been creating artworks on the borderline of kitsch and critique, plumbing the imagery of mass culture with works like this Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer paddle, an edition of 900 created in conjunction with an exhibition at the Deutsche Guggenheim in 2000. Rudolph is far from the only pop-culture icon to be appropriated by the artist (he's also devoted paintings and high-polish steel sculptures to Popeye and the Incredible Hulk), but animals are one of the artist's favourite subjects—Koons built a towering puppy sculpture out of flowers, and he is hugely famous for his massive, candy-coloured balloon dog sculpture, one of which sold for $58.4 million at auction in 2013.
