“Art is the truth and everything else is a lie.”

George Condo has occupied a central position in the landscape of American painting for nearly forty years. His unique and imaginative visual language pays tribute to a vast array of art-historical traditions and genres, drawing together elements of Old Master portraiture with allusions to contemporary American culture. Populated by a cast of characters whose bulging eyes, bulbous cheeks and  proliferating mark them apart as a singular species, Condo’s art is profoundly original.
