About the Artwork

Split Rocker is a prime example of Koons‘ persistent fascination with dichotomies. A monstrous 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. That's why for these qualities of its material being it is the reason I used it in the Banality series. I am really thrilled to be a part of the Bernardaud collection."

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 (= splits) that offer shifting perspectives and a dynamic form which celebrates the idea of irregularity. Signed and numbered on the box.

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

Innovations and developments in classical printing techniques have allowed artists to create limited Editions also in three dimensional shapes.
