The Seven Seas explores a teenager’s first encounter with the nightclub culture found within Los Angeles during the late 1970’s and early 1980’s. By utilizing both memory and reference material, Condon seamlessly blends the architecture, lifestyle, and aesthetics associated with Sunset Strip nightclubs such as Rodney Bingenheimer’s English Disco. Known for her exploration of various painting techniques, Condon creates stunning paintings and mixed media objects that capture both the uncertainty and excitement surrounding the rock and roll lifestyle, as well as the landscape of childhood.
Condon’s work has been shown at venues such as the National Art Museum of China; Weatherspoon Art Museum, Greensboro, NC; Hunter College, NYC; Whitecliff College of Art & Design, Auckland, NZ; STOREFRONT, NYC; Winkelman Gallery, NYC; and many others.
Condon is represented by Emerson Dorsch Gallery, Miami; and Lesley Heller Gallery, NYC.
