Chromium steel, 240 × 472.5 × 38 cm / 439.5 × 132 × 38 cm

Condo’s letters made of stainless steel forms another variation on portrait art. Four sculptures were created in 2002. Their highly sensitive surfaces were damaged during an outdoor exhibition and had to be re-worked. All the scratches were removed from the sculptures “Miles Davis” and “Monk” and they were then polished to a mirror finish, work that stretched over several weeks.
