“Blue dolphins splashing, red poppies amongst rocks, coral-colored columns, sacred trees, Ariadne’s thread, craggy limestone rocks, and spiral lines dancing over jugs.” Jessica Snow
Pastine Projects is pleased to present Minoan Stories, an exhibition of new work by Jessica Snow, that includes oil pastels on paper created at the residency Château Orquevaux in France. The one-month residency followed a particularly seminal stay at Agia Pelagia, in Crete over the summer where Snow says she “dove deep into the mythical.” Inspired by preclassical art, the geography of Crete, and the ancient myths of the island, her new work unfolds like an an archeological excavation where, for Snow, “meaning is always at play, tugging here tugging there, never quite settling into one thing or another.” The works in Minoan Stories have the appearance of being made by an artist freed to focus on her imagination. Forms and color transcend the restrictions of material, time, and place and take on the mantle of the mythic.
More than Once, Upon a Time
Jessica Snow, Minoan Storries 11
On December 10, we are thrilled to announce the US premiere screening of More than Once, Upon a Time, a film directed by Paul Morrill and Jessica Snow. The film takes place in Spain and Italy, looping from the future to the past to the present. It explores the sacred nature of creativity and divination, as well as themes of archeology, the poetics of the natural world, and the fluid nature of time. The film is an official selection of the 2022 Immagina Florence International Film Festival.
Photomontages by Kathryn Dunlieve

Pastine Projects is pleased to announce an exhibition of photo-based collages by Kathryn Dunlevie. Meditating on fragments of our shared visual history, Dunlevie creates works that meld the familiar with the extraordinary. Each work depicts a silhouette of a woman whose interior is an amalgam of scavenged images. Often these women step forward with a sense of urgency and purpose, disrupting or activating the space around them. The collaged elements within each body create narrative content suggesting a diverse array of possibilities. Dunlevie challenges us through the silhouettes “to all move forward, piecing together the best garments from our personal histories and creating our own new trajectories with daring authenticity.”
