ABOUT > BIO
ELISABETH CONDON is an American painter, whose extensive body of work features poured paint as a central compositional landmark. Condon combines disparate paint applications and materials to re-interpret landscape for an information-saturated world. Referencing Yuan Dynasty scrolls, her mother's fabrics and wallpapers, 1970s glam rock clubs and places the artist has lived or traveled evokes synthetic spaces where nature and decor intersect.
