Rare to find at second market. This large and quintessential painting by American artist Jordan Eagle.
Materials: Preserved cattle blood, plexi, UV resin
Provenance: estate of Richard Laing whom purchased from R Wells Gallery
Eagles treats blood as a universal life force. His process and work have a strong focus on the material’s physical and dynamic qualities, challenging preconceived notions and relationships to blood. Eagles manipulates and encases the blood in resin, producing multidimensional forms which reveal the blood’s visceral properties and innate energy. His preservation technique permanently retains the organic material’s natural colors, patterns, and textures. When lit, the works become translucent and luminous, reflecting the many layers suspended throughout the resin.
