Yvonne Condon is a dynamic female artist from East Cork. She creates bold, uncompromising images, working at great speed. Yvonne also happens to be non-verbal and partially blind.
Yvonne’s drawing style is determinedly graphic, fearless. She paints with acrylic on in-expensive card, using thick black outlines, mixing colour directly on the surface rather than a palette. Her method of production is singular and intense, she may produce a painting in a matter of just 10 minutes.
Yvonne works from observation, working with sitters or collected imagery from a plethora of books, magazines and photographs.
Yvonne’s unapologetic figures present open-ended stories: a yellow lady examines her face using the fingertips of her three hands, a tiny beast balances on Saint Patrick’s mitre, there is green-faced Adam.
Yvonne participates in Crawford Supported Studio and is a long-term member of Glasheen Artists Studio Programme Gasp Artists
