ABOUT > BIO
ELISABETH CONDON is an American painter whose extensive body of work features poured paint as a central compositional landmark. Within the pours Condon combines disparate paint applications and materials that re-interpret landscape for an information-saturated world. References to Yuan Dynasty scrolls, her mother's fabrics and wallpapers, 1970s glam rock clubs and locations where the artist has lived in or visited evoke synthetic spaces where nature and decor intersect.
Condon's prizes, grants and fellowships include the 2015 New York PULSE Prize, a 2015 New York Studio School Mercedes Matter award, the Pollock Krasner Foundation Grant and Florida Individual Artist Grant. Her artist residencies and fellowships include the Montello and UCross Foundations, Carrizozo Colony, Wave Hill Winter Workspace Program, Art + History Museums Maitland, AIRIE/Florida Everglades, Swatch Art Peace Hotel Shanghai, Morris Graves Foundation, Grand Canyon National Park, Wupatki National Monument, Yaddo and Fountainhead as well as earlier residencies in Taiwan, France and Somerset, UK. Condon was tenured at the University of South Florida 2003-14.
