Jordan Eagles – Blood Work
BLOOD WORK, an exhibition of new paintings and a site-specific installation by New York-based artist Jordan Eagles, opens at the International Museum of Surgical Science with a free, public reception on Friday, September 14, from 5:00 to 9:00 pm, and runs through November 30, 2012.
For over a decade, Eagles has garnered public and critical attention for his signature use of a unique artistic medium—blood. The artist applies animal blood, which he procures in large quantities from slaughterhouses, to plexiglass panels and suspends its fluid, organic forms within layers of transparent UV resin through an experimental process of his own invention.
This exhibition is the latest installment of the Museum's ongoing "Anatomy in the Gallery" exhibition series, which has explored the intersection of medicine and contemporary art since 1998.
