Elisabeth Condon

Elisabeth Condon, born Los Angeles and based in Manhattan and Tampa, Florida, paints landscape with a feminist perspective. Her process begins with pours of acrylic color and calligraphy ink on linen, to which she adds landscape elements, vintage wallpapers, textile patterns, and improvisational techniques inspired by ancient Chinese scrolls. Condon recently completed the public art work Urban Idyll (2018), commissioned by Metropolitan Transportation Authority Art & Design for the NYCT Astoria-Ditmars Blvd. Station in Queens. She is a 2019 MacDowell Fellow and a 2018 recipient of the Joan Mitchell Foundation Painters & Sculptors Program Grant.

While on residency, Condon painted sense impressions of the landscape informed by expeditions to cypress domes, lake and trail:

I learned how subtle microshifts occured in the environment, causing major changes. I immersed myself in the humid air, the roiling waters with foam, and the rhizomic growth of the mangroves.
