Project Description


Eithne Jordan was born in Dublin and attended the Dún Laoghaire School of Art (now IADT Dún Laoghaire) during the period 1972-76. She is a member of Aosdána and of the Royal Hibernian Academy (RHA).

Having lived for extensive periods of time both in London and Berlin (initially on a DAAD scholarship), she currently divides her time between her studios in the Languedoc region in the south of France and Dublin.

In the artist’s most recent paintings, she invites us to look closely at the histories woven through the institutions, museums and other public buildings in our cities that include artworks as a backdrop to their everyday activities.

Jordan has exhibited widely in Europe, most recently at Assab-One, Milan (with a contribution from Nathalie Du Pasquier). Recent Irish solo exhibitions include those at Highlanes Gallery, Drogheda; Crawford Art Gallery, Cork; Hugh Lane Gallery, Dublin. Her work is in major public and private collections in Ireland, Europe and the United States.
