Helwaser Gallery to Bring 20th Century Masters to Art Miami 2018
Featuring Condo, the gallery will present artworks by Calder, Chamberlain, Diebenkorn, Frankenthaler, Kusama, LeWitt, Lichtenstein, Mitchell and Serra, among others
Nov. 8, 2018 – New York, NY – From December 4-9, 2018, Helwaser Gallery (Booth #AM517) will return to Art Miami 2018 (One Herald Plaza / Biscayne Bay & 14th) for the ninth time with a continued focus on Post-War and Contemporary Masters. Ahead of George Condo’s 61st birthday on December 10, 2018, visitors may look forward to a thoughtful presentation of works produced over the famed American artist’s four-decade career.
A selection of two early portraits by Condo, Untitled (1985) and Constructed Female Figure (1989), illustrate the early years of his involvement in the New York East Village art scene. Describing his approach as "psychological Cubism", his works exemplify a hybrid sensibility, where references to Old Master paintings are skillfully blended with contemporary icons. Accompanying these are two drawings, Study for Incomprehensible Dream I (2003), and Nude with Towel (2007), which display Condo's technical dexterity through his use of chiaroscuro.
Helwaser Gallery's booth will also present major artists of the late 20th century. Roy Lichtenstein's Brushstroke II (1986) conveys a sculptural representation of an enlarged, colorful brushstroke, crafted after the style of commercial illustration. Tom Wesselmann's pastel-colored laser cut-out, Bedroom Blonde, Black and Green Pillows (1986), yields the Pop artist's allusions to large-format, billboard-style advertisements. Together with John Chamberlain's vibrant sculpture, Schadenfreude (1993), these works provide a visual commentary on the Pop Art movement's embrace of popular culture and industry.
Rounding off the presentation is Nets Infinity (1997), a work from the "Infinity Nets" series by seminal Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama, as well as additional works by renowned abstract expressionist painters, Helen Frankenthaler and Richard Diebenkorn.
Arranged in alphabetical order of their last names, the full list of artists presented at the booth are Alexander Calder, John Chamberlain, George Condo, Richard Diebenkorn, Friedel Dzubas, Helen Frankenthaler, Yayoi Kusama, Sol LeWitt, Roy Lichtenstein, Joan Mitchell, Richard Serra, Joaquín Torres-García, John Wesley, and Tom Wesselmann.
About George Condo
George Condo (b. 1957, Concord, NH) is credited for inspiring a revival of interest in American painting and portraiture over his four-decade career. He is best known for his imaginative portraits of people and characters, which have shocked and surprised viewers through his idiosyncratic style that manages to deliver humor and horror in turn. His paintings have earned acclaim and praise for their ability to put the contemporary present in dialogue with references to masters, such as Picasso, Goya, and Velázquez. Using the term "Artificial Realism," the artist once described his practice as the "realistic representation of that which is artificial.” His works can be found in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; The Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; the Tate, London; and other institutions worldwide. He has also been the subject of major surveys and retrospectives, which have been shown in institutions such as the Tate Modern, London; New Museum, New York; and the Phillips Collection, Washington, DC. The artist currently lives and works in New York City.
About Helwaser Gallery
Based along Museum Mile in New York City, Helwaser Gallery specializes in Post-War and Contemporary art, featuring seminal artists such as Alexander Calder, Helen Frankenthaler, Adolph Gottlieb, and Yayoi Kusama. The gallery was founded in Paris in 1986, where it initiated significant exhibitions, including a retrospective on Jean Dubuffet in 1996, and others on French Cubist masters, notably George Braque, Jean Metzinger, and Pablo Picasso. In 2008, Helwaser Gallery marked its inaugural relocation to New York with the exhibition “Red,” which brought together Post-War artists, such as Jean-Michel Basquiat, Hans Hofmann, and Andy Warhol. This 2019, Helwaser Gallery will reopen its new space on the Upper East Side with a public exhibition program, in both the primary and secondary markets.
