BLOOD IN THY HAND: Jordan Eagles

Eagles utilizes overhead classroom projectors to set the entire space aglow in luminous, wall-to-wall projections of "blood light." Life-size color photographs of nude models, onto whom he projected blood patterns, serve as documents of his photographic shoots and introduce new figurative elements that emphasize Eagles' fascination with corporeality, mysticism, and physical and intangible spaces.
Born in 1977, Jordan Eagles received a BA from New York University. His works have been exhibited internationally in venues such as The Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, Real Art Ways, Center for Visual Arts of New Jersey, The Bronfman Center Gallery at New York University, Paul Robeson Gallery at Rutgers University, Mark Wolfe Contemporary, Krause Gallery, and Jacob | Karpio Galleria; and numerous art fairs: SCOPE, London Art Fair, Los Angeles Art Show, and Aqua Art Miami. Eagles' works are included in The Bohlen Collection and the The Prudential Center. His work has been featured in The New York Times, Village Voice, L'Uomo Vogue, Architectural Digest Italy, New York Magazine, MSNBC, NY Post's Page 6, and FOX News. Recently, the producers of the upcoming Disney film "When in Rome" acquired Eagles' work, and his images are also used in Richard Move's film "Blood Works" on the life of Ana Mendieta, and a reproduction of his work is currently being used as a mass ive 50-foot stage curtain for Alice Cooper's international rock concert.
