Eithne Jordan, b.1954

Skip II2012

This work is part of the Street series which follows Jordan’s interrogation of the urban, mainly focussing on European cities. This work shows a streetscape in Dublin. Although there are recognisable scenes in this work, there is nothing familiar or reassuring in the method of their capture. Whether it is the darkness of a February afternoon, the reflected light of a fresh snowfall, or the distinctive hue of Halogen Street lights, her paintings are charged with content that is either to come, or else is taking place just out of view.

About the Artist

Eithne Jordan b.1954

Irish artist Eithne Jordan attended Dun Laoghaire Institute of Art, Design and Technology, Dublin. Since her emotionally charged expressionistic paintings of the early 1980s, Jordan’s work has turned towards a formal exploration of the seen world. She looks at the urban environment and is drawn to anonymous spaces, factory roofs, subway tunnels and blank walls. Jordan was elected as a member of Aosdána in 1990. She has exhibited widely in Europe. She took part in the Artists’ Residency Programme at IMMA in 2009.
