Let the sunshine in! As the weather heats up so does the art available to view in New York City. AF came to the first NYC solo exhibition of Los Angeles based artist, Eamon Ore-Giron, entitled Smuggling the Sun at the new space of Nicelle Beauchene Gallery on Broome Street. The works can be best taken in as colorful, full of dynamic composition and vibrant in spirit.

The canvas pieces of Flasche paint on raw linen evoked an organic character and intensified the shapes that float about. Geometric abstraction comes to mind upon viewing Ore-Giron’s work but it is not merely about shapes inhabiting the plane. Done quite effortlessly with a loose and unrestrained logic of non-representational ideals that he managed to still convey intimacy but not shrinking the ebullient feel of his pieces. There is a graphic and poster like quality to the oeuvre that hearkens to 1970’s sensibility.

Counterpoint was achieved by Ore-Giron in giving a sedate base for these colorful shapes to rest upon. It has to be the raw linen that counter balances the vibrant hues as it cools down the riotous combination of prismatic colors dominated by reds, oranges and others from the basic set in a Crayola box. If done in a regular white canvas, the glaring surface would compete with the vibrant hued shapes and diminish the otherwise organic nature of his work and might make it impossible to take it all in.

The Latin influence is also steeped into the works as well with its rhythmic movement and the choice of colors. Punctuated by not only the Latin American tradition of Geometric Abstraction, he integrates Kinetic Abstraction, Neo-Constructivism, and Constructivism. It encompasses all these genres while giving the eye the permission to dance all over the surface.
