Jeff Koons
Puppy Vase, 1998

Jeff Koons plays with ideas of taste, pleasure, celebrity, and commerce. “I believe in advertisement and media completely,” he says. “My art and my personal life are based in it.” Working with seductive commercial materials (such as the high chromium stainless steel of his “Balloon Dog” sculptures or his vinyl “Inflatables”), shifts of scale, and an elaborate studio system involving many technicians, Koons turns banal objects into high art icons. His paintings and sculptures borrow widely from art-historical techniques and styles; although often seen as ironic or tongue-in-cheek, Koons insists his practice is earnest and optimistic. “I’ve always loved Surrealism and Dada and Pop, so I just follow my interests and focus on them,” he says. “When you do that, things become very metaphysical.” The “Banality” series that brought him fame in the 1980s included pseudo-Baroque sculptures of subjects like Michael Jackson with his pet ape, while his monumental topiaries, like the floral Puppy (1992), reference 17th-century French garden design.

Irma Blank – Life Line

Irma Blank
Life Line
28 January – 18 March 2017

After Senza Parole (2013), P420 is pleased to present Life Line, a solo show by the artist Irma Blank (Celle, 1934) specifically created for the spaces of the gallery.

German by birth but residing in Italy since the late 1950s, Irma Blank lives and works in Milan. She has inherited the need to connect art and life from the avant-gardes, and especially the neo-avant-gardes of the mid-20th century. This criterion of measure emerges in Blank’s work since the end of the 1960s, in the form of silent aesthetic dedication. She has made writing the thread around which to develop and convey lengthy experience with a focus on gesture. All of Blank’s work is marked by the dialectic between writing and drawing, writing and painting. Paper, canvas, panel and book are the surfaces on which she creates and structures the relationship between sign and time; ink, ballpoint pen, watercolor, oils and acrylics are the tools Blank chooses to create the body of the work. Though always applying different approaches, the reference to writing and the space of the book is a constant in her creations, starting from the very first series of works; a writing that becomes universal, that is never to be read, but to be observed. Painting becomes reading, writing becomes image. An architecture of the unspoken and the in-between.

Mel Ramos – Gitanes Legeres

mel-ramos-gitanes-legeres

Mel Ramos
Gitanes Legeres

Mel Ramos’s provocative, humorous paintings mix idealized nude women with the imagery of popular culture—Coca Cola bottles, movie posters, and the like. A prolific artist from his emergence in the 1960s onward, Ramos has often based his nudes on the female celebrities of the day, from Marilyn Monroe to Scarlett Johansson. His style references the sensuality and glossy flatness of pin-ups and Playboy spreads and has drawn the ire of feminists and art critics alike, despite Ramos’s assertion that his works are “apolitical”. Though clearly aligned with Pop art in his appropriation of imagery from mass media and consumer products, Ramos calls his practice rooted in Surrealism and its emphasis on “absurd conjunctions”—in his case, a beautiful nude woman emerging from a Snickers wrapper or lounging seductively in a banana split.

American, b. 1935, Sacramento, California, based in Oakland, California

“No Portrait” is the new series of works by Donatella Izzo.

As opposed to a reality more and more dominated by appearance and from the exhausting search for aesthetic perfection, the artist creates a complex and introspective iconographic universe which puts her focus on the search for an anti – canon, in which the fallacious concept of imperfection is stripped from its negative connotations to acquire higher values.

“No Portrait” project will be presented for the first time in 2017 by LaBottega Gallery of Marina di Pietrasanta (LU), Italy.
