About the Work
The dogs the artists have rescued from the West Greenville neighborhood which is home to the ArtBomb figure heavily in Condon's work, as do many animals and plants used as symbols throughout the history of art. Many of these symbols are, of course, personal in nature, and some are universal, but the distinction between the two is left to the viewer.
About the Artist
Diane Kilgore Condon was born in Wisconsin and raised throughout the East and Midwest,
finally coming from Florida to South Carolina to attend college. She lives with her husband and
daughter in Greenville, SC. Condon graduated with a BA in Fine Arts from Bob Jones University in
1988, and credits her grandmother, who was also a painter, as an early influence in her artistic life.
Condon is founder, owner, and a member of ArtBomb Studios in Greenville, a non-profit
organization that seeks to promote visual art in the region, and to provide working artists affordable
studio space. It is here that the journey of turning a large, old company store for the local mill into a
place to produce works of art has sparked new opportunities to work together as a community for
eighteen Greenville artists.
Condon has shown her work primarily in the Carolinas, with gallery representation in Greenville, SC,
Columbia, SC, and Highlands, NC. She has participated in group shows at the Greenville County
Museum of Art and the Morris Museum in Augusta, GA. Her work has been included in numerous solo,
group, and juried exhibitions, as well as included in many private collections throughout the country.
