George Condo's "ENTRANCE TO THE VOID"
A lot of the pop-culture audience learned of George Condo's work through his artwork around Kanye West's "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy" album, a superb commission by West that showed his range in contemporary art. But for some of us, it was just another brilliant output by Condo, an artist that captured portrait art in a unique and, at times, twisted way. His newest show, Entrance to the Void, that just opened at Spruth Magers in Los Angeles, was created during Condo's battle with cancer, and subsequently, as he told the Guardian, “I was just freaking out doing these paintings. I was in five different places in my mind at the same time.”
