Painters & Sculptors Program 2018 Elisabeth Condon
New York, NY
Elisabeth Condon was born in Los Angeles, CA, and now lives and works in New York, NY. She received an MFA from the School of The Art Institute of Chicago and a BFA from Otis Art Institute of Parsons School of Design. Her paintings combine disparate applications to re-interpret landscape as synthetic space where nature and decor intersect. Condon travels frequently to artist residencies, including Ucross Foundation, Wave Hill, Swatch Art Peace Hotel, Yaddo, Grand Canyon, and Florida Everglades. She is the recipient of a Pollock Krasner Foundation Grant, a Florida Individual Artist Grant, the 2015 Pulse NY Prize, and a Mercedes Matter Alumni Award from the New York Studio School Alumni Association. Condon’s work is represented in New York by Lesley Heller and in Miami by Emerson Dorsch, and is held in the permanent collections of the US Embassy Beijing, Perez Museum, Tampa Museum of Art, and JPMorgan Chase.
“My portrayal of landscape as a journey through consciousness is inspired by Chinese scroll painting from the Yuan Dynasty. Each painting, when grouped with others, reveals shifts in perspective, like a scroll spliced in parts. Time collapses in the multilayered formation of the land and re-expands again through the wonder of painting it.”
