Literature

"This idea came to me in the early eighties as a way to describe my painting; "the realistic representation of that which is artificial." I wrote a kind of Artificial Realist manifesto in which I stated: it's about dismantling one reality and constructing another from the same parts, and that various concrete objects are not attached to their parts alone. [...] Essentially what I am painting is the state in which the image-time of one reality superimposed in a field of another simultaneous presence now becomes a new conjunctive hyper-reality or hybrid image showing the simultaneous presences." (George Condo interview by Ralph Rugoff, in George Condo: Existential Portraits, New York 2006, p.8)
