THE PIECE OF ARTWORK I LOVE: UR6 (Blink) by Jordan Eagles (2008)

Why did you choose this piece?

It has an interesting element to it that I haven’t seen in anything else: When there’s no light shining on it, it’s completely black, but if there’s light on it, it glows. It comes alive and you see what it’s made of. For me, that’s spiritual — It’s like a person: if there’s no light shining, they’re completely dark, but if there’s light on them it shines through them and you see what they are. And it can be surprising.

How did you discover it?

I saw it at Mark Wolfe Contemporary Art, where it was on display as part of a whole show by the artist. This was one of the more organic pieces, made of just blood and resin.

What stands out most to you about it?

It’s called Blink, and that can mean so many things. I find the abstract nature of it very appealing. It’s got a strong beauty, but great versatility.
