Elisabeth Condon’s paintings have been recognized by a Joan Mitchell Foundation Painters and Sculptors Grant, Pollock Krasner Foundation Grant, and Florida Individual Artist Fellowship. They reside in the permanent collections of Tampa Museum of Art, Perez Art Museum Miami, Hudson River Museum, United States Embassy Beijing, and numerous private collections throughout the United States, Europe, and Asia.
Public commissions extend Condon’s synthetic landscape into the urban environment. They include Urban Idyll, commissioned by MTA Art & Design Percent for Art for the NYCT Astoria-Ditmars Boulevard Station in Queens, Lattice Views, commissioned by Norte Maar in Brooklyn’s Highland Park, Notes on a Landscape, commissioned by the Judy Genshaft Honors College at University of South Florida, and Verdant Tampa Bay for the Tampa Airport’s International Arrivals Terminal.
Condon has integrated travel and artist residencies into her practice, listing 23 residencies since 1992. Her time at the Sam and Adele Golden Foundation Residency Program in New Berlin, NY was especially important to her upcoming exhibition for Emerson Dorsch, Tempus Fugit.
The discourse surrounding Condon’s work is substantial. An eloquent writer about her process and philosophy, interviews are a good way to delve into her deeply erudite way of articulating the context and references in her work. Recent interviews are available at Two Coats of Paint and Voyage Mia. Condon is also a regular guest on the podcast Pep Talks for Artists, where she shares deeply informed observations of paintings by Joseph Stella, Sam Francis, Pierre Bonnard and Edvard Munch, among others. Writers who have written essays about Condon include Jason Stoppa, Erica Ando, Franklin Einspruch, and Tyler Emerson-Dorsch.
For eleven years Condon served as Associate Professor at the University of South Florida, Tampa. She holds an MFA from The School of The Art Institute of Chicago and a BFA from Otis Art Institute of Parsons School of Design, Los Angeles, where she grew up a second generation native. Condon currently lives and works in New York, NY and Tampa, FL.
