About the Artwork

Split-Rocker (Vase) is a prime example of Koons‘ persistent fascination with dichotomies. Based on the colossal floral sculpture constructed from the halves of two toy rockers (a pony and a dinosaur), Split-Rocker plays with the idea of the “split” and the irritation this hybrid figure causes.

"I was always intrigued by porcelain, by both the economic and the sexual aspect of the material. Porcelain was the emperor's material but today it has been democratized and everybody can enjoy porcelain."

Jeff Koons

With a reference to both Cubist and Surrealist influences, the two non-congruent halves of the heads form a strange in-between shape with open spaces that offer shifting perspectives and a dynamic form that celebrates the idea of irregularity.

About the Artist

Koons Artist Artwork Signature

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.
