JEFF KOONS : A RETROSPECTIVE

Friday, July 25, 2014

Hello Lovelies,

I can't thank you enough for your amazingly sweet comments you left on my latest post Finding My It Girl. The wheels are definitely in motion and I've been doing a lot of thinking about additional ways I can better serve you all, my readers, here on Travel Write Draw. Ultimately I want to give you access to the very best of art, culture, fashion, & illustration here in New York and abroad and inspire along the way. So today I'm starting with an inside glimpse into what I consider one of the best art retrospectives I've seen to date in New York - Jeff Koons: A Retrospective at the Whitney Museum.

I visited this exhibition a week or so ago and was absolutely overjoyed by the experience. Jeff Koon's work is meant to elicit a reaction from its viewers and it most certainly did for me. There is something really refreshing about standing next to oversized everyday objects, play-doh and the like, that ignites the child in you. I left feeling totally recharged which says a lot considering it was crowded with the typical selfie obsessed attendees. The saturated colors alone are worth the visit. If you are planning to make a visit to New York this Summer, make it apart of your "must see list" otherwise enjoy the snapshots I curated just for you.

Much love,
Meag xx

  1. This exhibit looks amazing! I saw another exhibit at the National Gallery in Ottawa and his silver bunny in Toronto at Nuit Blanche and it was incredible. I'm hoping to catch this exhibit too! xo, Natalie http://natalieast.com

  4. Awesome post, Meagan! I always find it interesting to explore artwork from different mediums (since I use primarily traditional materials). Sculpture is such a unique art form. I've never been to the Whitney museum so it's definitely on my to-do list now! :D

    1. @Lizz Visions thank you my love, I do too!! I love mixing colored paper with acrylic and watercolor inks. I don't have much experience with sculpture but absolutely love observing them, especially ones that are larger than life xx

  6. Most influential, popular and renowned American artiest Jeff Koon is known for his reproduction of banal objects like balloon animals produced in stainless steel with mirror finish surfaces. You can find his best work at Ophear.com displaying each of his work in an impressive manner. Get back to the website to check them.
