Play-Doh is part of the highly acclaimed Celebration series which relates to the cyclical year (birthdays, holidays, seasons, etc.) and a more general celebration of the cycle of life and values like innocence, pleasure, and suspension of judgment. The image references, Play-Doh (1995-2008), a large-scale oil painting depicting a mound of Play-Doh against a reflective Mylar background, refracting the shapes and colors, creating a limitless spectrum of colors and textures. Koons wanted the Celebration paintings to be as objective as possible, a universal experience where everyone would see the same thing.
