For her first solo institutional exhibition, New York-based artist Jennifer Packer presents new and recent paintings. Tenderheaded brings together multiple strands in the artist’s practice, ranging from portraiture to the funerary bouquet. Based in observation, improvisation, and memory, Packer’s canvases are intimate and contemplative, rendered in loose strokes and strong color. Like the exhibition title, the juxtaposition of these various modes of representation and production point to possibilities both bodily and emotional, fragile and strong.
