Exhibition poster with the work, Mythological Figures – Mythologiske Figurer, (2018), by the American artist, George Condo (b. 1957). The poster was published in conjunction with Louisiana's exhibition, George Condo: The Way I Think, in 2017/18, in the exhibition series, Louisiana on Paper – the first exhibition of Condo's work in Scandinavia at the time.
Mythological Figures , was acquired for Louisiana's Collection in 2019 and featured in the museum's exhibition, What are You Looking at?, the same year.
George Condo's style has been called "Picasso meets Bugs Bunny". Condo mixes and distorts all kinds of genres and mixes input from the great masters of art history with elements from, among other things, American pop art.
In a myriad of moods and states, Condo makes us aware of how complex, intense and unruly the world manifests itself. Unreality, madness, humor and paranoia are prevalent in the work and constitute an unusual look at something as current as the discussions about facts and lies.
Throughout the years, Condo has challenged the notion of drawing as subordinate to painting. However, it would be wrong to say that Condo is not also a painter, but his works on paper form such a prominent part of his production that Louisiana's exhibition of his art from 1974 onwards, featured 130 works and 223 sketchbooks – on paper.
