New York-based contemporary artist George Condo continues his exploration of portraiture with his latest exhibition at Skarstedt. In his most recent selection of works, Condo has adopted Harold Rosenberg’s notion of “action painting” – a term used to describe the performative and energetic exercised by Abstract Expressionist painters – to create his own action portraits. Through the lengthy processes of layering, erasure and reconstruction, the shattered images of faces and bodies emerge from and interact within a field of abstract forms. The “Double Heads and Black Paintings/Abstractions” exhibition runs through until December 20, so make sure to check out the exhibition if you’re in the area.
