Smith, Nancy Jesse Pasca: My Heart as a Stock Market The Bomb Zine 03.08 2008

This is a sweet, refreshingly light-hearted show that presents itself beautifully in the natural light of the gallery. No wonder it scored a neat little write-up (by Rachel Wolff) in the NEW YORK Magazine culture blog: VULTURE - Edited by Dan Kois & Lane


A born New Yorker, JESSE PASCA continues to live and work out of NYC and Sag Harbor, NY. He received an MA with Honors in Art Education from City College of New York, and a BFA from SVA (School of Visual Arts, NY).

There are 8 drawings in the show. Four are based on horizontal grid tables, and the rest are vertical. We liked the vertical ones best - though looking back - we did really like the horizontal one, too.

Our super favorite was the purple chart featured at the top of this post - because the alternating horizontal bands of purple and black gave a kinetic impression of zipper folded paper....what can we say, looking back, the horizontal ones started to

reveal themselves as pretty interesting, too.
