Catalogue Note

"I wanted to capture the characters in these paintings at the extreme height of whatever moment they're in - in the static moment of chaos – and to picture them as abstract compositions that are set in destitute places and isolated rooms. Everything takes place in a relatively impoverished kind of situation."
The Artist cited in an interview with Ralph Rugoff, Exhibition Catalogue, New York, Luhring Augustine, George Condo: Existential Portraits, 2006, p. 8
