Cherokee Spring 2013


“I describe what I do as psychological cubism,” says Condo. “Picasso painted a violin from four different perspectives at one moment. I do the same with psychological states. Four of them can occur simultaneously. Like glimpsing a bus with one passenger howling over a joke they’re hearing down the phone, someone else asleep, someone else crying – I’ll put them all in one face.”

“The only way for me to feel the difference between every other artist and me is to use every artist to become me.”

That openness to influence is even more characteristic of how he paints, riffing incessantly on the painters he loves – Rembrandt, Hals, Picasso, De Kooning, Rothko, Guston, Degas, whoever – in order to establish his own identity as an artist.

He points to a little patch of yellow pastel in the corner of a picture called The Laughing Clown. “That’s me being fascinated with Degas’s ballet dancers and wanting to work with his palette. It’s like a cross between Hegel and Heidegger. The appearance of the painting suggests the being of the thing. And the simultaneous presence of various different psychological states adds up to what the object is.” Righto, and Heidegger? “That’s the idea of becoming. So you have this diversity of artistic influences in a picture and they’re in a process of becoming – becoming the painting, something different and autonomous from the influences that go into it.”

Condo could have been a musician, too. Born in 1957 in Concord, New Hampshire, he studied classical guitar, then switched to the lute. Is he still playing? “I play a little viola da gamba, but I gave up the lute after I asked Hopkinson Smith to help me tune it. He’s a great lutenist, and when I played for him it sounded like someone putting a pickaxe through Michelangelo’s David. Then I handed it to him and he played it beautifully. I guess the best that lute can get is that Hopkinson Smith played it – I should just leave it alone.”


Constellation Portrait, 2013

As a young art student in late-70s Boston, he joined a synth-based art-punk band called the Girls. When they played a gig in New York, he met fellow artist-musician Jean-Michel Basquiat. It led to a close friendship; Basquiat convinced him to move to New York. Once settled there, Condo managed to get an eight-month stint at Andy Warhol’s Factory, during which time he met the great man only once. Years later, though, Warhol bought several paintings from one of Condo’s first shows. Condo fitted into the art world easily, hanging with Basquiat, collaborating with William Burroughs, befriended by both Allen Ginsberg and Keith Haring.

But Condo only really established his artistic identity once he moved to Europe, first to Cologne, then Paris where he spent 10 years between 1985 and 1995. He lived on the Rue de Condé in the same building as Félix Guattari who became intrigued by the American’s works whenever he visited the studio.

Like everybody else who’s ever looked at Condo’s paintings, Guattari noted that the American appropriated stuff from great painters and didn’t deign to hide it. But Guattari noticed something more. “There is then a very specific ‘Condo effect’ which separates you from all the painters you seem to reinterpret,” he wrote in a 1990 exhibition catalogue. “You sacrifice everything to this effect, particularly pictorial structure, which you systematically destroy, thus removing a protective guardrail, a frame of reference which might reassure the viewer, who is denied access to a stable set of meanings.”

“It’s what I call artificial realism. That’s what I do. I try to depict a character’s train of thoughts simultaneously – hysteria, joy, sadness, desperation. If you could see these things at once that would be like what I’m trying to make you see in my art.”


In Darkness, 2013.

As we reach one of his most impressive new paintings, In Darkness, which seems to echo Bacon’s Study After Velázquez’s Portrait of Pope Innocent X, I ask Condo for a frame of reference. “I guess it’s a self-portrait,” he says, then breaks into that baritone laugh again.

Standing Bather 2013

His recent ink drawings “vacillate between cubism, realism, abstraction and figurative painting” and  the characters in them are now confused, “isolated in a dark space. With little left to them, they’re ready to crawl back into the dark.” While his other recent paintings  are standing there in the full light of day. “I wanted to think in terms of light, pastel, part impressionist influences in the work and use the entire space of the canvas,” he said. “They’re about wiping out the hierarchy between drawings and paintings. I love both and wanted them to be indistinguishable. There’s a different language between painting and drawing but these are all improvisations on the human figure to some degree.



Screeching Figure 2013

“They’re not naturalistic, you can see the eyes the teeth but they’re like constellations of forms. There is the presence of somebody in there some way or another. These ones are more objective to me and maybe subjective to the viewer.”


His hybrid style paintings –  daringly fuse the sensibilities of European Old Master painting with references to popular American culture, including Playboy magazine, comics and cartoons...

2011_Hayward_001 Batman and Bunny, 2005, by George Condo

His often grotesque but classically executed paintings continue to surprise and, at times, horrify…


“When I came out in the late 90s there was a negative impact in how governments were treating people, there was a lot of dehumanization. Life for some people in certain areas of the world was degrading and I felt there was something in empathizing with that – it’s not all about pretty faces on the covers of magazines. There’s that thing about a homeless person. Do they want you to throw them a dime or would they rather you noticed them, that they were seen or heard, and just recognized as being alive?”
