Eamon Ore-Giron

b. 1973, Tucson, AZ; lives and works Los Angeles, CA

Eamon Ore-Giron’s practice blends a wide-range of visual styles, drawing from such diverse influences as Latin American Concrete Art, Italian Futurism, Russian Constructivism, the Mexican muralists, Amazonian tapestries, and pre-Columbian Peruvian gold artistry. In his abstract geometric paintings, Ore-Giron layers, combines, and manipulates simple shapes to create complex compositions that speak across cultures and temporalities. The bright colors and designs on expanses of raw linen bring to mind Moholy-Nagy's paintings of the 1920s, which prominently featured similar unpainted grounds, but might just as well originate from Ore-Giron's coming-of-age in Tucson, Arizona, an arid environment in which color always pops in the brown landscape. 

 

Ore-Giron's painting, music, video, and performances have been shown at venues including James Cohan Gallery, New York, NY; MASS MoCA, North Adams, MA; the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, CA; the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, CA; the Whitney Museum, New York, NY; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, CA; LAXART, Los Angeles, CA; Deitch Projects, New York, NY; MUCA ROMA, Mexico City; Pérez Art Museum Miami, FL; Museo Tamayo Museum, Mexico City; Peres Projects, Los Angeles, CA; Consonni, Bilbao, Spain; Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Philadelphia, PA; Los Angeles County Museum of Art, CA; and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco, CA, among others. Ore-Giron's paintings are in museum collections including the Hammer Museum; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Minneapolis Institute of Art, MN; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, MA; Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Philadelphia; Pérez Art Museum Miami, FL; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Santa Barbara Museum of Art, CA; and the Whitney Museum, among others. In 2020, Ore-Giron was a Presidential Visiting Artist, Anderson Collection at Stanford University. Ore-Giron received a BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute in 1996 and an MFA, University of California, Los Angeles, in 2006.
