American artist George Condo was born in Concord, New Hampshire, in 1957. He attended the University of Massachusetts, in Lowell, where he studied Music Theory and Art History. George Condo’s art can be viewed as a multilayered experience that brings the viewer in touch with a psychological exploration of human nature. Through a process of transformation that involves art historical language and an actualization of their philosophical content, George Condo’s paintings open a window onto the world in which we live. In Silver Mass, Condo investigates the concept of abstract painting, combining figurative elements in an elaborate process of layering, erasure, and reconstruction that fractures the subject’s form.
His work is featured in the permanent collections of major museums including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, the Tate Modern, and the Centre Pompidou. Recently, his work has been the subject of institutional exhibitions in Berlin, Washington DC, Shanghai, and Monte Carlo, and will be the subject of a major retrospective at the Musée d’Art Moderne in Paris in 2025.
