Condon brings a new clarity and razor focus to the vocabulary that combined flowers, interior design and abstract painting that she introduced in 2017 at Emerson Dorsch. In his catalog essay for Effulgence, Jason Stoppa writes, “In this new series, Condon often prods the viewer with the familiar. A flower or tablecloth can be obvious symbols for domesticity and femininity; if the viewer takes the bait the symbol is used as a vehicle for image making itself. “
Elisabeth Condon is the recipient of the Joan Mitchell Foundation Artist & Sculptors Grant for 2018 and she is currently in residence at the MacDowell Colony in New Hampshire. Condon lives and works in New York and Tampa, FL.
Emerson Dorsch is a contemporary art gallery with two complementary roles: to represent a core group of select South Florida-based artists, to host and represent excellent emerging and mid-career visiting artists. The gallery’s name reflects the partnership in art and life between the husband and wife team Brook Dorsch and Tyler Emerson-Dorsch. We believe in the joys of an artful life, of experiencing art close to the source. Through all the gallery’s activities, we foster art patronage and artistic community.
Brook Dorsch founded Dorsch Gallery in the early 1990s to exhibit Miami-based artists. Tyler Emerson-Dorsch joined the gallery in 2008 after earning a Masters from the Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College. After almost 25 years, the gallery moved a second time to Little Haiti, a neighborhood northwest of downtown Miami.
