Diane Kilgore Condon Joins if ART Gallery

Diane Kilgore Condon was born in 1964 in Wisconsin and raised throughout the East and Midwest, coming to South Carolina to attend college from Florida.  She lives with her husband and daughter in Greenville, SC. She 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.  She is a member and owner of ArtBomb Studios in Greenville, where the journey of turning a large old Company Store into a place to produce works of art has sparked an intense desire to repurpose and redeem materials and to focus in on these topics of redemption and the odd turns of cause and effect on daily life. She salvages  wood  from  the luxury homes her husband builds into small bird paintings which she installs in large sweeps across walls and up and over doors and windows. The end effect is an attempt to capture the sense of life- back from the initial loss of habitat created when the tree was felled.  The dogs the artists have rescued from the neighborhood where the ArtBomb is located have also figured heavily in her work, as have many animals and plants used as symbols for human experience.
