Jordan Eagles’ Works of Blood

8 04 2012

New York City artist, Jordan Eagles, sometimes referred to as the “blood artist” has been using blood procured from a slaughterhouse as his primary medium for over a decade. Eagles manipulates the blood through layering, heating, burning, aging, and sometimes mixing with copper to spark the flow of energy once present. Preserved and encased in plexiglass and UV resin, the “works becomes relics of that which was once living, embodying transformation, regeneration and an allegory of death to life.” When illuminated, the works of blood project a glow from within exploring the themes of corporeality, mortality, spirituality and science.
