Condron’s current body of work explores a variety of mediums and their application. The work is an experiment in texture and pattern that rejects traditional materials. Condron utilizes found, cheap or free materials such as house paint, spackle, wood, and drop cloth. The aggressive mark-making, cancellations, and buildup of these seemingly random textures creates a composition that finds a system in the chaos of material.
Since childhood Condron has also been entirely obsessed with cartoons and comics. Developing a major fascination with the form and the ability to use characters to communicate a message, Evan has been illustrating a wide variety of topics from politics to personal dilemma.
