Jenna Packer contemplates the newly minted Anthropocene and explores its human and environmental costs. She paints a dystopic vision of a society with roots in the Industrial Revolution of the nineteenth century and the totalitarian power of a neoliberal political economy in the twenty-first. Using centuries old techniques of paint application and glazing, Packer’s works seem to document a history that is paradoxically yet to pass.
