Description

A window into the imaginative, cubist world of George Condo, this work is an alluring piece of Neo-Modernist contemporary art. It features a single figure kneeling in profile among several architectural elements. Characterized by erratic sketching and cross-hatching, the work effuses a sense of urgency—as if the artist couldn’t wait to bring his vision to life.

About George Condo

Contemporary visual artist George Condo (American, b. 1957) has described his work as “psychological cubism” or “artificial realism.” Reminiscent of de Kooning and Picasso, his paintings, drawings, and sculptures explore human nature and the madness of everyday life using stylized, cartoonish figures. Boasting features that often verge on the grotesque and absurd, his oeuvre remains humorous, empathetic, and critical. His rich pictorial inventions have been exhibited at The Phillips Collection, Washington D.C; the New Museum, New York; and the 2019 Venice Biennale. They also reside within the public collections of MoMA, the Centre Georges Pompidou, Tate Modern, Museo Jumex, and other international institutions.
