Simon Lee Gallery has an exhibition of new paintings by renowned American artist George Condo opening tomorrow.
This will be the artist’s first solo presentation of paintings in London since the critically acclaimed retrospective George Condo: Mental States, which travelled to the Hayward Gallery in 2011-2012. It will coincide with a solo show of Condo’s new works on paper at Skarstedt Gallery London.

Marking a new development in the artist’s oeuvre, the exhibition at Simon Lee Gallery will feature a series of portraits whose subjects extend irrepressibly beyond the confines of the canvas. Informed by the trajectory of art history spanning from European Old Master painting to Cubism and Abstract Expressionism, the works are hybrid images emblematic of Condo’s singularly inventive style. As Condo states, ‘The only way to feel the difference between every other artist and me is to use every artist to become me’.
