Jackie Black’s photographs examine the ambiguity of American culture surrounding mortality. Organized by Curatorial Assistant and Parrish Publications Coordinator, Savannah Petrick, Last Meal is the artist’s commentary on capital punishment. To produce the 12 x 12 images, Black researched, recreated, and photographed the last meals and statements of 23 individuals who were tried, convicted, and executed in Texas under capital murder between 1984 and 2001. At first glance, they read as staged food photos on a glossy diner menu. But suspended against stark black background with no suggestion of social nor human aspects of mealtime, each becomes a macabre still life.
