JORDAN EAGLES is a New York based artist who preserves blood primarily sourced from a slaughterhouse. Through his invented process, he encases, layers and suspends the blood. This preservation technique permanently retains the organic material’s natural colors, patterns, and textures. When lit, the works often become translucent, cast shadows, and project a glow. The materials and luminosity in these bodies of work relate to themes of corporeality, mortality, spirituality, and science.
Blood Mirror project is Eagles' first works with human blood addressing the FDA's discriminatory blood donation policy.
Eagles' works are held in numerous private and public collections including the Addison Gallery of American Art, Everson Museum of Art, Peabody Essex Museum, Princeton University Art Museum, Prudential Center, The Rose Art Museum, and University of Michigan Museum of Art.
