Elisabeth Condon, a visual artist, overlays her native Los Angeles with places she has lived and traveled in landscapes where Yuan Dynasty scrolls meet the Flintstones.
Her paintings, collages and drawings use improvisational pours of paint, sketchbook drawings and digital projections to establish idiosyncratic compositions. Heeding the Tang Dynasty dictum of landscape as a fusion of observation and memory, they interweave external and internal perceptions of particular locations. Working in oil, acrylic and ink, Condon shifts between volume and pattern, treating space like a scroll that is sectioned, then layered.
Condon's work has been included in exhibitions at the National Art Museum of China, Beijing, SongZhuang Museum, SongZhuang; Shenghua Art Centre, Nanjing; Weatherspoon Art Museum, Greensboro, NC; Tampa Museum of Art, FL, Ft. Lauderdale Museum, FL and the Housatonic Museum of Art, Bridgeport, CT. She is an Associate Professor of Painting and Drawing at the University of South Florida and divides her time between Tampa, FL and Brooklyn, New York. Her work is represented in Miami by Dorsch Gallery and in New York by Lesley Heller Workspace.
