Jordan Eagles - New Blood Paintings
Jordan Eagles, Phase 9-10 (2007), 36 x 44 x 3 inches, Blood, resin, preserved on Plexiglas.
SAN FRANCISCO, CA.-Mark Wolfe Contemporary Art is pleased to present new works by New York-based artist Jordan Eagles in his West Coast solo début exhibition. Eagles has been using animal blood in his multidimensional works for nearly a decade. Capitalizing on the material’s unique chromography and reflective and refractive qualities, these new works – many on a monumental scale – explore themes of regeneration and the physical and intangible connections between body, spirit and nature.

Eagles applies blood to clear and white Plexiglas and then permanently preserves the organic material with layers of resin, allowing the high-gloss surfaces to suspend the fluid, organic forms. The renderings often resemble inkblot test patterns, cellular details as well as large-scale photographic images of planets. In the presence of light, the blood's translucency is revealed under and between the multiple layers of clear resin, retaining and vibrating the light and illuminating pools of reds/blacks and proteins with sealed-in air bubbles– the results are remarkably luminous and often breathtaking as the blood permanently maintains its rich color and natural texture.

Eagles’ recent solo shows include: Real Art Ways in Hartford, CT, Touchet Gallery in Baltimore, and Merge Gallery in New York City. His work has been featured in The New York Times, Village Voice, Architectural Digest, and Baltimore City Paper, and is currently on view at the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art in Hartford, CT.
