About the Artwork

Seated Ballerina, commissioned by the Israel Museum in Jerusalem on the occasion of the Museum's 50th anniversary, reproduces the famous larger-than-life sculpture Seated Ballerina in mirror-polished stainless steel. 

"I try to educate people about materialism through my work. I try to show them real visual luxury. It’s intoxicating visually.”

Jeff Koons

Part of the series Antiquity, Seated Ballerina explores themes of beauty, fertility, love, and the connectivity in the artistic dialogue that spans the history of man. Jeff Koons has blended the concerns and methods of Pop, Conceptual, and the readymade with craft-making and popular culture to create his own unique iconography. Using iconography and specific materials with painstaking finishes he explores controversal and engaging themes such as sex and desire; race and gender; and celebrity, media, commerce, and fame.  

About the Artist

Jeff Koons (born 1955) playfully tests the boundaries of commerce, celebrity, banality and pleasure. He turns banal commercial or everyday objects into art icons by using seductive materials, a shift of scale and a contextual displacement.

About the printing Technique
