Tommaso Corvi-Mora is pleased to present a solo exhibition of new work by American artist Jennifer Packer.

Jennifer Packer isdedicated toan exploration based in observation. There is a yearning for verisimilitude in lieuof realism in the artist's portraits, interiors and still life paintings, even as many works are rooted inmemory. Packer’s desire toboth project and protect the sitter’s subjectivity isparamount in the figurative works. The portraits from life are executed in the sitter’s home orstudio, as acommitment toa genuine exchange. The portraits are a record of care, a testament tothe irrefutability of thebody and individual identity. Packer isalsointerested inthe latitude of color as it pertains tovisibility, matter and climate. There is a concern about both the “undeniability” and elusiveness of color in particular, andits relationship to the bodies depicted. “Ithink about images thatresist, that attempt toretain their secrets ormaintain their composure, that put youto work,” Packer explains. “Ihope tomake works that suggest how dynamic and complex our lives and relationships really are.

Jennifer Packer was born in Philadelphia in 1984 andlives in New York. She received her BFAfrom theTyler University School ofArt at Temple University, Philadelphia in 2007. In 2012 she wasan MFA graduate of the Yale University School of Art;in 2012-2013 she was Artist in Residence at the Studio Museum of Harlem. Since 2014 she is a Visual Arts Fellow at The Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, MA. Packer lives andworks in New York.
