About George Condo
Emerging from the Neo-Expressionist movement of early 1980s downtown New York City, George Condo has continued to expand upon the aesthetics of Cubism which have greatly influenced his work. Working in a sort of Postmodern representational abstraction, Condo draws from Picasso as well as Surrealism, creating dissonant and disjointed figures that reference art history yet are hyper-contemporary. With this 2022 work on paper, Condo's trademark cartoon eyes hide behind layers of gestural forms, dissecting and deconstructing the figure, with energy, motion and color. Learn More
About Nicole Wittenberg
Based in New York City, Nicole Wittenberg strives to capture the sensorial emotions of particular moments and experiences in nature, chasing the feeling of being there. Unbeholden to naturalism, what she focuses on is the translation of a lived experience and sensation into an image, and the possibility of returning to that moment. Learn More
