Blood Work was a series by artist Jordan Eagles based on the various elemental qualities of blood and copper, as well as works in blood dust and gauze. In the presence of light, the works vibrated iridescent reds, crimsons, oranges, browns, and black and cast shadows, projecting an intense glow. These effects made the works appear as if they are illuminated from within.

Blood Work provides a compelling multi-sensory experience that engages allegories of life, death, and regeneration, and aims to convey the connections between body, spirit, and nature.
