"Significant art must somehow address the world in which it is made and presented. On the surface, a portrait of Jesus hardly seems like a vehicle for engaging current concerns, yet in its convergence of gravitas and cartoonish-ness, of emotional credibility and ridiculousness, Condo's painting sums up defining aspects of our relationship with contemporary culture. Simultaneously soliciting varied registers of response, it instills a general uncertainty as to how we might go about deciphering its mixed messages."
