I've been studying a lot of my favorite modern masters lately, Pablo Picasso, Joan Miro, Jean Arp and Constantin Brancusi. In so doing, I found my way to Jeff Koons, Damien Hirst and Paul McCarthy. Iconoclasts, all. In this study of Jeff Koons Rabbit I've found parallels between all of the above mentioned in terms of surface development, rhythm, volumes and underlying order. In the deformations, I am not only finding basic abstractions through twisting both acute and gentle velocities but, re-contextualize the object from what it is at it's core, a manifestation of Marcel Duchamp's "ready made" and bringing it to a more seemingly organic realm. As the reflections of Jeff and a collage of his paintings swirl within the surfaces, their subjects too are trans-morphed into something that to me seems more of a chaotic organic dance out of a static origin. Of course, this effect is achieved though a very anti chaotic geometric order.
