Elisabeth Condon is a painter trained in Chinese scrolls and traditional landscape paintings. Condon environmental topographies and floral imagery. Most recently, she has depicted abstract paintings that recreate landscapes with decorative wallpaper, textile patterns and floral imagery. Her process involves transferring floral pattern samples onto transparent mylar sheets, then manipulates them by scale to create abstract landscape imagery. The abstracted forms are representative of the relationships between nature, culture and painting. Condon will work on watercolor observational drawings in the greenhouse and document changes over time, season and light.

In 2015 Condon received the New York Studio School Alumni Association's Mercedes Matter Award. Recent artist residencies include the Florida Everglades (AIRIE), Swatch Art Peace Hotel Shanghai, Grand Canyon National Park, Wupatki Natiional Monument, Corporation of Yaddo, Fountainhead and Red Gate.
