For his third solo exhibition at the gallery which has been representing him for ten years now, George Condo has created a brand-new group of paintings inspired by cartoon characters from the 1950s and 1960s.

This new series marks a turning point in George Condo’s work although it still carries on seamlessly his research into painting, which lies somewhere between realism and abstraction. Inspired mainly by Tex Avery, Hanna-Barbera and Looney Tunes characters - some of them now forgotten – George Condo shows here the original outlines of these characters which are used as the central starting point for his painting, extending the black outlines which sketch out their contours in order to produce an abstract composition which will cover the remainder of the canvas…

The analysis developed by the French art critic and curator Eric Troncy highlight the different references and inspiration sources within History of Art as well as contemporary culture.
