Jeff Koons Quote: “I love the gallery, the arena of representation. It’s a commercial world, and morality is based generally around economics, and that’s taking place in the art gallery.”

Jeff Koons Quote: “It’s wonderful to make a lot of money, to be able to take care of my family, to have the facilities I have and really support the people the studio’s involved with. But at the end of the day I’m quite simple as an artist-it’s really about the power of art.”
Jeff Koons Quote: “I’d have to say I’ve become more aware of my communal responsibility.”

I think it’s just something that presents itself. And if it does, I find it’s usually optimistic, not negative in its terms.”
Jeff Koons Quote: “I believe that my art gets across the point that I’m in this morality theater trying to help the underdog, and I’m speaking socially here, showing concern and making psychological and philosophical statements for the underdog.”
