Informed by scroll painting and 20th century abstraction, Elisabeth Condon paints landscapes where nature and décor intersect. Her work has been likened to the Pattern & Decoration artists who "refused to dwell in abstraction without representation", and its pours of color described as "the primal soup from which her pictures emerge." Layering pours and patterns thinly, Condon opens shallow pockets of space within her surfaces. The improvisational working methods she employs ensure that "making a painting is like taking a trip."
Condon travels frequently to artist residencies, from Mexico City to Shanghai, Grand Canyon to the Everglades. She recently completed Urban Idyll, thirty-six laminated glass panels for the NYCT Astoria-Ditmars Blvd. Station in Queens, commissioned by MTA Art & Design. Condon's work has been recognized by the 2015 Pulse NY Art Fair, New York Studio School Alumni Association, Florida Individual Artist Fellowship, the Pollock Krasner Foundation, and the Joan Mitchell Foundation.
Her paintings are held in the public collections of Perez Art Museum Miami, Tampa Museum of Art, United States Embassy Beijing, and JP Morgan Chase, and private collections throughout the United States, Europe, and Asia. Condon’s work has been featured in numerous online and print publications including Hyperallergic, artcritical, Artnews, Arts + Antiques, Miami Herald, New York Observer, and the New York Times.
