George Condo Drawings at Skarstedt London

george condo drawing

George Condo will be showing a group of new works on paper at the Skarstedt Gallery in London from the 11th of February. It will coincide with a painting exhibition by the American artist at the Simon Lee Gallery in London. It looks like it’ll be a really nice show. I wish London was a little closer to Australia ;-)

The large ink drawings were completed by the artist over a six month period.

My intention with this body of work was to explore the extreme possibilities of ink on paper. I used the medium to create transparent layers of colors. I thought of Rothko at times and his overlapping veils of transcendental space. I placed the figure into this kind of space and used lines to define their ambiguous presence in the void.
