Cirrus Editions is pleased to present Eamon Ore-Giron’s Clepsydra, a series of three lithographs that draw upon Ore-Giron’s rich vocabulary of visual codes and diverse practice as a painter, musician and DJ.
Inspired by his own cultural influences, the geometric elements in Clepsydra intertwine geographies, and oscillate through time with their distinct use of tone and color. They reference indigenous and craft traditions, such as Native American medicine wheels and Amazonian tapestries, as well as Brazilian Neo-Concretism, Italian Futurism, and Latin American Concrete Art. The result is a visual language that brings to the fore a nexus of multiple trajectories and exchange.
Eamon Ore-Giron (b. 1973) was born in Arizona to a Peruvian father and mother of Irish descent. Prior to moving to Los Angeles where he currently resides, he lived in Mexico City, as well as Huancayo and Lima. His multi-cultural upbringing in Tucson as well as his time in Mexico and Peru played an influential role in developing his unique, and transnational oeuvre of abstraction.
Eamon Ore-Giron received a BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute in 1996 and an MFA from the University of California, Los Angeles in 2006. Recent group exhibitions include SOFT POWER at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (2019); Made in L.A. 2018 at the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; Soul Mining at the ASU Museum of Art, Arizona State University, Tempe (2017); Something Else, the OFF Biennale Cairo (2015); and the 2008 California Biennial at the Orange County Museum of Art, Newport Beach, California. He has also had solo exhibitions at the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver (2022); The Anderson Collection at Stanford University (2022); LAXART, Los Angeles (2015); 18th Street Art Center, Santa Monica (2012); and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Philadelphia (2005), among others.
His work can be found in a number of permanent collections, including Art in Embassies, U.S. Department of State; Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; Kadist, San Francisco; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, MA; Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Philadelphia; Pérez Art Museum Miami; the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.
