This recent publication features Jeff Koons' painting series, Hulk Elvis, in which he creates large works including images of the Incredible Hulk, inflatable monkeys, geishas, birds, and the Liberty Bell, all bursting with energy and precision. These spectacular pictorial inventions of brightly-colored silhouettes loom and recede in the swirling delirium of color and line, creating visceral manifestations that dazzle the eye and confound the senses.
