It’s blood. NYC artist, Jordan Eagles, works solely with gallons upon gallons of blood obtained from a slaughterhouse. By manipulating the blood through heating, burning, aging, mixing with copper, adding foreign materials, and then encasing it in plexiglass and UV resin, Jordan is able to capture an array of organic designs. His large pieces are uncomfortably beautiful, especially when lit, the blood seems to glow against the clean white walls of a gallery.
