Eamon Ore-Giron (b. 1973, Tucson, USA) blends a wide-range of visual styles and influences in his brightly colored abstract geometric paintings. Referencing indigenous and craft traditions, such as Native American medicine wheels and Amazonian tapestries, as well as 20th-century avant-gardes, from Russian Suprematism to Latin American Concrete Art, his paintings move between temporalities and resonate across cultural contexts. Ore-Giron also works in video and music, and his body of work across media makes manifest a history of transnational exchange.
Ore-Giron’s work, as a solo practitioner and as part of collaborative endeavors, has been presented at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (2019); Hammer Museum, Los Angeles (2018); LAXART, Los Angeles (2015); OFF Biennale Cairo (2015); Pérez Art Museum Miami (2013); Los Angeles County Museum of Art (2008); El Museo Universitario de Ciencias y Arte, Roma, Mexico City (2006); and in Prospect.3, New Orleans (2014). Ore-Giron has been selected for major public commissions in New York City and Los Angeles. He received a BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute and an MFA from the University of California, Los Angeles.
