Lips is a large-scale painting from Jeff Koons’s series Easyfun-Ethereal featuring lush food and fashion imagery floating against a pastoral background. The lustrous, lipstick covered lips, locks of hair, corn kernels, and fruit slices, and peach colored liquid are computer-scanned reproductions taken from magazine advertising and the artist’s personal photographs, combining familiar yet sometimes unrelated images to create a surreal layered painting rendered with photo-realist perfection. Koons compresses his imagery into the foreground of his works, treating his subjects as purposefully flat, opaque images that seem to deny any specific social critique or psychological implications. Instead, his imagery, which is drawn from pop culture to art historical references, emphasizes acceptance and celebrates the sensuality and amazement that can be wrought from all of life’s visual experiences.
