Press Release

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

GEORGE CONDO
SCULPTURES
MAY 5 – JUNE 10, 2005

Skarstedt Fine Art is pleased to present an exhibition of new sculptures by George Condo.

In his new work, George Condo has returned to “emotion” as the main subject for a group of ten sculptures. The sculptures were executed in clay at the artist’s home during just four weeks between February and March 2005. The intense compression of time in which the works were made brings an edge to the fleeting glances, grimaces and eccentric personalities depicted in the sculptures.
Mr. Condo intends that the sculptures reveal the “inner feelings of the subject which in turn becomes the basis for their external appearance.” In a time when personalities are constructed and emotions and feelings have to be calculated carefully, Condo exposes the inner truth behind the masquerade. Here emotions are stripped bare.

George Condo’s Restrospective “100 Women” curated by Thomas Kellein is currently on view at the Museum of Modern Art, Salzburg and “Disassembled Objects” is also currently on view at the Power House in Memphis, TN. Condo has had one-person shows at The Caprenter Center for Visual Arts in Cambridge, MA (2003), the Schlosspark Wendinghausen, OstWestfalenippe, Westfallen, Germany (2002), the Palais des Congres de Paris, Paris (1995), the McKinney Avenue Contemporary, Dallas, and the Contemporary ArtsMuseum, Houston (1994-1995), and has been featured in numerous one-man gallery shows and group exhibitions worldwide.

This exhibition is produced in collaboration with Caratsch, de Pury and Luxembourg, Zürich, Luhring Augustine, New York, and Sprüth Magers Lee, London.
