Jennifer Packer Exhibition Poster
This poster of the painting Tia (2017) was produced on the occasion of Jennifer Packer: The Eye Is Not Satisfied With Seeing at the Serpentine Galleries, the artist’s first institutional exhibition outside of the US.
Combining observation, improvisation and memory, Jennifer Packer’s portraits, interiors and flower paintings centre on the emotional and physical essence of contemporary Black lives. Packer paints portraits of those she knows – family, friends and fellow artists. She acknowledges that the choice to paint figures is a political one, saying: ‘Representation and particularly, observation from life, are ways of bearing witness and sharing testimony.’ Packer offers a protective distance between sitter and viewer by layering, revealing and obscuring details through constant shifts between grounds and space, dissolving figuration into near abstraction. Characterised by a vibrant approach to colour and a powerful play of scale, her paintings, often worked on over extended periods of time, combine formal rigour and painterly skill with emotional intimacy.
