The Kandors series by artist Mike Kelley, consists of a number of bottles of hand blown glass and different bright colors. Kelley began this work in 1999 and ended in 2007. It was based on the classic image of Krypton, a fictional planet created by DC Comics universe for Superman. In this series, Kelley reconstructs Kandors ten unique versions. Kelley has described the process of creating Kandors as an attempt to make such a flat, colorful and visually simple as a painting by Matisse, which operates three-dimensional work, yet maintains an overall sense of graphic simplicity. All works have light or movement and exposure is self-illuminating. Initially the series was exhibited at the Jablonka Gallery in Berlin in 2007.
