One More Stateside Practice Shoot

If these panels resemble the color of blood, there is good reason. This is the art of Jason Eagles who has created these panels using sheets of plexiglass and bovine blood set with acrylic. They are the headline exhibit at MOCRA, the Museum of Contemporary Religious Art housed on the campus of St. Louis University. One of my voice students is the assistant director of the museum and had invited me down to see it earlier this year. I grabbed the opportunity before I took flight to Europe and got in some more practice with the new DSLR camera. These are four of nine panels, the work bearing the simple title “Bar One to Nine”. Here is the entire series, each panel about six feet tall:


Jason Eagles usually works in smaller sizes, and he uses copper in addition to the bovine blood.


He also uses medical gauze for other effects, as in the artwork below, which to me resembles a bamboo forest. A combination of blood, copper, and gauze set with acrylic. Full work and detail.



The day after tomorrow I take Burnie to the kennel that will be his home while I am away. Do you think he will miss me? How much will I miss him? Please note the dog door that he chewed into my back porch screen.

    I’m not sure about the use of blood, but there is no denying that these are stunning pieces of work, and your photos are equally stunning.

      He got the blood from slaughterhouses.

      I will miss him. He’s my buddy.

    Amazingly beautiful photos! And Burnie looks like he misses you already. ; )

      I think he senses a change coming. My suitcase has been standing in my room for a week.

        I had a parrot for well over 20 years, a great talker, but he refused to speak to me for usually about a week after I’d been away on a trip.

    Aw Burnie…. he sure looks like he knows what’s coming… either that, or he’s still digesting part of that door 😉

    Wonderful photos! This artist has some very interesting and beautiful work. Bon voyage, Rosemarie! Have a great time.

    To colormusing…I fully expect to be ignored or experience some passive aggressive behavior.

    Have a really great trip! And remember, absence makes the heart grow fonder 🙂

    Bon voyage! Burnie will survive just fine but his vacation will not be as interesting as your adventure plus he’ll not have any photos or words to share. Being reunited will ease the reentry when you return. Have a great time.

    Such stunning art indeed and I love how you’ve captured it. Beautiful! Burnie looks sad already and I am sure he is going to miss you very much. He is adorable! 😀

    • Rosemarie June 19, 2013 at 2:10 pm #

      Tomorrow he goes to the kennel. It will be strange to be in my house alone until I leave. It will feel empty.

      • Sonel June 19, 2013 at 7:40 pm #

        Awww shame. Oh, I bet but I am sure you will be back soon and then he will be happy again. 😀

    This is my first visit here. Your furry friend steals the show here on this post…his art work is hilarious♥ Looking forward to seeing more…

    • Rosemarie June 19, 2013 at 2:32 pm #

      Thanks for visiting my blog. I’m glad you enjoy Burnie’s work.

    Burnie is gorgeous! I can imagine that the two of you are missing each other. Safe trip, Rosemarie – and a big hug to Burnie, in absentia of course. 🙂
