George Condo: Painting Reconfigured Book


With his arresting, unsettling style, George Condo emerged from the dynamism of the New York art scene in the early 1980s, and he has been restlessly painting, drawing, and sculpting ever since. Working closely with the artist, writer and art historian Simon Baker has combined biographical, chronological, and thematic approaches to survey George Condo’s work and career to date. An introductory essay on Condo’s contradictory nature and a chapter exploring his early career are followed by three thematic chapters that look at the years from 1980s to the present, tracing Condo’s different systematic approaches to the language of painting, exploring his relationship to the concept of abstraction, and probing the darker side of his psychological iconography.
