Elisabeth Condon’s (February 2015) paintings, collages and drawings use improvisational pours of paint, sketchbook drawings and digital projections to establish idiosyncratic compositions. Heeding the Tang Dynasty dictum of landscape as a fusion of observation and memory, they interweave external and internal perceptions of particular locations. Working in oil, acrylic and ink, Condon shifts between volume and pattern, treating space like a scroll that is sectioned, then layered. Condon’s work has been included in exhibitions at Song Zhuang Museum, Beijing; Shenghua Art Centre, Nanjing; Weatherspoon Art Museum, Greensboro, NC; Tampa Museum of Art, FL, Ft. Lauderdale Museum, FL and the Housatonic Museum of Art, Bridgeport, CT.
She is the recipient of a Pollock Krasner Foundation Grant and a Florida Individual Artist Fellowship. She has been selected for artist residencies Yaddo, Saratoga Springs, NY, Fountainhead, Miami, FL, Red Gate, Beijing, China, and Loft Nota Bene, Cadaques, Spain. Condon lectures at numerous universities and colleges including Cooper Union School of Art, Boston University, Mount Royal College of Art and Montclair State University. She is Associate Professor at the University of South Florida and alternates her time between Tampa and Brooklyn, NY.
