Jordan Eagles: Blood Illuminations

JORDAN EAGLES is a New York based artist who preserves blood to create works that evoke the connections between life, death, body, spirit, and the Universe.

Exhibit Dates: September 25 - October 26
Reception: Thursday, September 25, 5 - 8 pm

JORDAN EAGLES has garnered cross-disciplinary public and critical attention for his dynamic and meticulous processes using and preserving blood–procured from slaughterhouses–with copper, gauze and resin. His multidimensional works become relics of that which was once living, embodying transformation, regeneration, and an allegory of death to life. In Eagles' Blood Illumination environments, analog overhead projectors are used to shine and enlarge patterns from translucent, preserved, blood panels into spaces. This effect transforms the space, casting patterns on the walls, ceilings and floors—as well as viewers—wrapping the organic patterns, light and shadows with the architecture of the space and abstracting the viewers' body to appears as a new layers of skin and natural birthmarks. Overall the materials and luminosity in Eagles' bodies of work relate to themes of corporeality, mortality, spirituality, and science—invigorating blood as sublime.

Eagles' Blood Illumination have been presented at the Everson Museum of Art (Syracuse, NY) and the Museum of Contemporary Religious Art (St. Louis, MI) as part of his recent solo exhibitions.  Other recent solo exhibitions include Boston Center for the Arts, the Mütter Museum (Philadelphia, PA) and The Fogelman Galleries of Contemporary Art at the University of Memphis. Eagles is also the first artist to be permitted to present work inside of the main chapel of the historic landmark, Trinity Church Wall Street (New York City), enveloping the entire chapel in a Blood Illumination.

Eagles' works are included in numerous museum collections including the Addison Gallery of American Art, The Elmhurst Art Museum, The Everson Museum of Art, The Princeton University Art Museum, The Peabody Essex Museum, the Museum of Sex, The Rose Art Museum, and The University of Michigan Museum of Art to name a few. Eagles' works have been featured in The New York Times, Time, Village Voice, New York Magazine, L'Uomo Vogue, Architectural Digest, VS Magazine, Artforum, The Boston Globe, The Huffington Post and PBS.
