Pastor's style lies somewhere between kitsch and pop art, but without the ironic intention. The products of meticulous research and painstaking craftsmanship, her pieces evoke an improbable sense of enchantment, relating both to the physical world and the surreal world of dreams. Jennifer Pastor: The Perfect Ride sheds new light on the work of this intriguing young artist.
