From The Guardian:

Flowers smudge the foliage in [Jennifer] Packer’s still lifes, the small canvases filled with greenery and darkness and sobriety. The titles of these flower paintings tell us that they are more than nature studies. Say Her Name is a funerary bouquet for Sandra Bland, found hanged in her cell in a Texas jail while in police custody in 2015. Packer’s flower paintings are memento mori for the named and the unnamed, and punctuate all the figures, portraits and rooms in her Serpentine Gallery show.
