The motif of the rabbit, which reoccurs again and again in Koons’ work, is based on a fundamental childhood memory of the artist. Impressed by the generous gesture of his neighbours, who decorated their front yards with inflatable rabbits for Easter, Koons already had the wish at an early age to spread happiness with his art. The sleek form, weightless silhouette and perfect processing of the Balloon Rabbit is a compensatory declaration of love for a childhood memory.
