Dust you are, to dust you shall return. (Genesis 3:19)
The Boston Center for the Arts presents artist Jordan Eagles in his debut solo Boston exhibition, Jordan Eagles: Blood Dust. Eagles presents a group of unsettling as well as sublimely beautiful hybrid sculptures and paintings, utilizing blood from slaughtered cattle as a medium to explore profound perceptions of life, death and resurrection. Curated by art historian Francine Miller, this exhibition comprises fourteen wall pieces and free-standing sculptures from 2011 to the present, featuring fresh, aged and dried blood ("Blood Dust"). In these works, poured, sprinkled and soaked blood is meticulously encased and preserved in layers of clear UV resin on Plexiglas to create polished minimalist forms that act as reflective and self-reflective surfaces on which to meditate.
Jordan Eagles' work is also on view at the LaMontagne Gallery in South Boston, opening April 12.
