My paintings translate landscape two dimensionally, compressing or stacking space into sliver-thin layers. Using improvisational paint applications from brushing and pouring to literally digging beneath the surface of paint, I re-envision textiles and wallpaper as synthetic landscape.

The Asian-inspired and Country French décor in my family home embodied the religious conservatism I grew up with, as if pattern alone could prevent the women's liberation and and civil rights movements sweeping 1960s and '70s America. When young I experienced the repeated patterns as confining and staring through them, sought transcendence beyond.

Now, setting the patterns free in a river of free-floating associations complicates the unfolding of time, revealing multi-layered experience in which nature and décor converge. References to scrolls, wallpaper, Color Field painting, and life in the Anthropocene further compress time and space.


Elisabeth Condon is known for paintings and works on paper that overlap natural and built environments with references to scrolls, décor, and calligraphy. Linking scroll painting with the decorative wallpapers of her childhood home, Condon incorporates lattice or bird and flower motifs in her paintings and public art works such as Urban Idyll, commissioned by MTA Art & Design Percent for Art for the NYCT Astoria-Ditmars Blvd. Station in Queens.

Condon's paintings are held in the collections of Tampa Museum of Art, Perez Art Museum Miami, United States Embassy Beijing, and numerous private collections throughout the United States, Europe, and Asia. She is recipient of the Joan Mitchell Foundation Painters and Sculptors Grant, the Pollock Krasner Foundation Grant, and a Florida Individual Artist Fellowship. Condon's fellowships include residencies at the Swatch Art Peace Hotel Shanghai, UCross Foundation, Yaddo, MacDowell, Wave Hill, Montello Foundation, and Carrizozo.

Condon holds degrees from The School of The Art Institute of Chicago (MFA) and Otis Art Institute of Parsons School of Design, Los Angeles (BFA). Born in Los Angeles, Condon lives and works in New York, NY.
