Sally Condon

EXCHANGE: Between you and me

Quotes from Reviews

Albuquerque Journal, May 24, 2015 by Wesley Pulkka
"Sally Condon's mixed media paintings are perennial favorites of mine. Her work is beautifully executed in a pulse racing palette of pastel tones acting as transitional veils between formal structure, atmospheric space and bold dense color accents.
In works like "Meeting and Passing" and "Stacking Tens" Condon creates vibratory rhythms between drawn lines, painted organic or geometric forms and her gorgeously sensual Easter egg-dye colored backgrounds."

 "Sally Condon's 19 piece "In Broad Sunlight" is a drop dead gorgeous show. Filled with beautifully crafted oil and wax paintings at Matrix Fine Art. Her radiant paintings magically light up the walls while offering viewers intimate narrative vignettes about life in Condon's backyard garden universe."

ABQ ARTS, November, 2002 by Richard Garriott-Stejskal
 “Few works of art have affected me so strongly, leaving me stunned and reduced to one-word exclamations, but Condon’s paintings left me dumb-stuck. They glow with an inner light (I want to turn the light out to see if they glow in the dark) The colors are mesmerizing. The shapes and forms hover just outside my recognition. Days later they still haunt me.”

THE magazine, June, 1999 by Diane Armitage
 “At a quick glance it would be easy to fault the paintings in this exhibition as being entirely too pretty. Yet the unabashedly lush and luminous color schemes are only the first layers to apprehend in work that has surprising depths and intricate surfaces that must ultimately be read slowly in order to appreciate the expertise of Condon’s painting. This artist makes her complicated process of pigment application seem effortless, as if these images calmly floated to the artist’s consciousness in a series of benevolent, Technicolor dreams.”

Albuquerque Journal, January 7, 1996 by Wesley Pulkka
 “Through a combination of architectural and organic forms small worlds are created. These neighborhoods of life are an amalgamation of sophisticated modernism and childlike innocence.”
“Overall Condon is able to reach inside herself and produce paintings that share the strength, beauty and vulnerability of a butterfly”
