Jeff Koons wants to mace you in the face
Just kitty-corner off of Rittenhouse Square I was stopped dead in my tracks by this poster of Jeff Koons devilishly spraying some cosmetic açai concoction. He, along with three other celebrities, has designed “limited edition” packaging for toning mists by Kiehl’s. Question: is Koons some sort of Dorian Gray? His hairline might be a bit higher, but otherwise he still sports that cherub-fresh visage which hints at an underlying playful wickedness. Here, he comes off like a present day version of Shakespeare’s great trickster Puck, gallivanting through the forest on faun hooves and indiscriminately squirting a magical formula that will cause romantic havoc.
