Balloon
Jeff Koons, 2008 Exhibition


Is this Art? Its the age old question people have asked since Cubism came on the scene and Warhol started painting Campbell Soup cans. To me it is art. In all its gaudy awful glory it is the best art there is. It is the art that holds our culture up to a mirror and asks us to study what it is we have truly become. We are a bunch of balloon animals. We don't have a bowl of fruit sitting on our table. We have condensed soup in a can.


I'm bored at work. Does it show?

We may be balloon animals, but we're very shiny ones, if this blue dog is anything to go by.
