Elisabeth Condon: Seuss Dynasty

April 12, 2008 - May 3, 2008

Opening reception April 12, 2008, 7 p.m. - 10 p.m.

Elisabeth Condon's 'Seuss Dynasty' paintings take as aesthetic inspiration Yuan Dynasty landscape, Dr. Seuss, and the brilliant light and exaggerated foliage of Condon's native LA, with its similarity to Miami. Condon begins with straightforward observations of various landscapes in sketchbooks then translates, re-imagines or re-invents them in the studio. The location where the paintings are made, whether Florida or at the artist colony Yaddo, infuses Condon's composition and palette, merging with other places the artist has lived, worked and travelled.
