Rubicon Gallery Announces 


Rubicon Gallery presents just over twenty new gouache on paper paintings by Eithne Jordan in this exhibition entitled

'En Route'. The paintings are uniformly encased in carefully constructed lucite/acrylic boxes, like small TV screens on pause or a glimpsed view through a car window. Later this month, at the Royal Hibernian Academy [November 15 - December 21, 2012], Eithne Jordan will show very large scale paintings on linen and canvas which were developed, without exception, from smaller gouache predecessors. In replicating scenes she has produced on a small-scale, Jordan takes on technical and compositional challenges, many details are frequently and deliberately omitted in the transition from small to larger-scale works and areas which are flat planes on a small scale become vast abstract blocks of color. 'En Route', at Rubicon Gallery, features those very specific gouache images that Jordan chose to paint in oil for her Royal Hibernian Academy exhibition and, since these two exhibitions run concurrently for a time, viewers have an opportunity to see part of this artist's working process. 
Eithne Jordan was born in Dublin and lives and works in Dublin and the South of France. She studied in the Dun Laoghaire Institute of Art, Design and Technology and then at the Hochschule der Künste in Berlin. Recent solo exhibitions have included; Small Worlds at the MAC Belfast; Street Stills, ASSAB One, Milan; Night in the City, Rubicon Gallery Dublin as well as exhibitions at Centre Culturel Irlandais Paris, Fenderesky Gallery Belfast, The DOCK Carrick-on-Shannon and Galway Arts Centre.
