Budi Pradono visited Massimo De Carlo gallery in Milan, 22 Ocober 2009

Massimo De Carlo gallery is a small contemporary gallery at Via Giovanni Ventura, on 18

September - 31 October 2009 ;

George Condo works:
Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Art (But Were Afraid to Ask)

On the first floor is dedicated to sculptures; nine works, most of them faces that looks towards the entrance, directly facing the viewer and pushing him directly into the visionary world of the artist. A white, light coat almost gives us the impression of something old, renewed, of objects that comeback to light after long period of seclusion. On the next room several canvases show Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Sylvester and Wile E. Coyote, that present themselves as if they were pages from an old painting album belonging to a child: the background is white and neutral, dark and noticeable, scribbles and smears....

Born in 1957 in Concord, New Hampshire (USA) George Condo moves to New York in 1981. His works are exhibited at the Whitney Museum of American Art of New York, the MoMA, the Guggenheim of New York, the Tate Modern of London, the contemporary arts Museum of Houston, and the Contemporary Art Museum of Barcelona. in 1999 he is awarded by the American Academy of Arts and Letters.
