Elisabeth Condon is a North American artist whose paintings combine her native Los Angeles in synthetic landscapes with a feminist perspective. Condon's process layers initial pours of acrylic color and ink, adding vintage wallpaper, textile patterns, and improvisational techniques inspired by the imaginary travel in scrolls. In addition to the 2019 solo exhibition Effulgence, Condon recently completed Urban Idyll (2018) at the NYCT Astoria-Ditmars Blvd. Station, commissioned by Metropolitan Transportation Authority Arts & Design.
The recipient of a 2018 Joan Mitchell Foundation Artist & Sculptors Grant, Condon has been awarded the New York PULSE Prize and New York Studio School Alumni Association Mercedes Matter Award for 2015, a Pollock Krasner Foundation Grant and Florida Individual Fellowship for 2008, and fifteen research grants from the University of South Florida, where she held tenure eleven years. Condon is a 2019 MacDowell Fellow. Her previous residencies and fellowships include the Montello, UCross, and Morris Graves Foundations, Carizozo Colony, Wave Hill Winter Workspace Program, Swatch Art Peace Hotel Shanghai, Fountainhead, The Yaddo Corporation, and National Parks Residencies at Grand Canyon and the Florida Everglades. Condon's work is held in the collections of Perez Art Museum Miami, Tampa Museum of Art, United States Embassy Beijing, and JP Morgan Chase, and has been featured in numerous online and print publications including Hyperallergic, artcritical, Artnews, Arts + Antiques, the New York Times, New York Observer, and the Miami Herald. She lives and works in New York with an additional studio in Tampa, FL.
