This exhibition will showcase the work of two abstract painters, Elisabeth Condon and Carole d’Inverno. Elisabeth Condon’s paintings are an intersection of nature, décor, and abstraction. Their vocabulary of flower, lattice, pour evolves from combinations of sumi-e, expressionist, and Color Field paint applications. Carole d’Inverno’s work translates historical and geographical data from local communities into humanized abstractions. The resulting paintings and drawings naturally reflect the community and its people.
The conversation taking place in this exhibition will center around the concept of light and its various layered meanings. Both artists seek, through their paintings, to bring to light not only the formal aspects of color, line, and shape, but also to personal and collective histories, memories, and experiences. Both women have served as Artists in Residence at the Art & History Museums of Maitland.
