George Condo

The Walrus, 2005

Bronze
66.04 × 33.02 × 60.96 cm
Edition 1 of 4

The expressive elements rendered in the faces of ‘The Walrus’ by George Condo expose a highly psychological dialogue. The portrait is paradoxical, both smiling and screaming, creating a duality of fear and happiness, ecstasy and madness. Though the viewer recognizes this as a portrait, it is a caricature of the traditional technique and a macabre doppelganger of human life.
