George Condo at Jack Rutberg Fine Arts Los AngelesJuxtapoz // Wednesday, 15 Jun 2011
This Thursday, June 18, George Condo has a new show opening featuring a collection of etchings at Jack Rutberg Fine Arts in Los Angeles. Condo has been in the press over the past 12 months with the album cover work for Kanye West and the major retrospective at the New Museum in NYC.
As Rutberg notes, "Works in the Rutberg Gallery exhibition reveal an intimate - and for many - a surprising aspect of Condo’s work, displaying a more distilled aesthetic, rooted through great draftsmanship and line. Condo is typically known for bold paintings so brash as to be referred to as gonzo artificial realism. 'Artificial Realism' is the term the artist uses to describe his works, which by turns are meditative, wry, irreverent and fantastical, reflecting Condo’s now-iconic surrealistic mash-up of Old and Modern Masters."
