Oh, bloody hell: It's Jordan Eagles again!

Jordan Eagles, who knows a thing or two about the power of blood, returns with his latest saturation, New Blood, which will begin splattering the walls of Krause Gallery on Friday, May 23. In fact, there will be reception from 7 p.m.-11 p.m.

For more on Eagles, check out Felicia Feaster's review of his previous exhibition. Here's my favorite passage from the review …

Eagles’ blood is legitimately procured from a Jersey slaughterhouse, though it’s hard not to think of more nefarious, “Sopranos” sources. In Eagles’ paintings, the blood clots into black beads and at other times inexplicably crystallizes like ice and assumes colors from a reddish rust to a dark molasses brown. In one of the most interesting pieces, Eagles has allowed the blood to dry, and tiny pieces flake away, like a dandelion’s fluff blowing in the wind.
