relevant excerpts....



Jesse Pasca inscribes literary texts and lists onto sheets of paper in a script so minute it is indecipherable. Pasca's all-over text drawings evoke an oppressive infinity of useless, unreadable information, but his work, like Agnes Martin's, is meticulously handmade, and even in his densest drawings, the discrepancies between words and rows accumulate into uneven lines, cracks, gaps where the white of the blank page shines through.
