Shop Exhibit

Ricky Swallow | Resonator (for I.W.), 2017
Opening Sunday, September 17, 2017
1 – 3 PM

A special edition artwork for the release of the new album Dzi by Imaad Wasif.
Presented by A Grey Market.

The work will be on view through September 24

Every record could be thought of as a kind of tomb to seal in and secure a particular moment rendered and recorded against the forward ticking momentum of the artist.

This object is perhaps some kind of secondary mechanism to hold, re-ritualize and celebrate the arrival of Wasif’s DZI LP.

The guitar form, and specifically its body is an object I’ve remade episodically over the past 5 years, never straying too far from it’s traditional (stubborn) shape. Oriented vertically, like instruments in wait, the potential for sound is always there.

To extend this invitation, 9 artists from Wasif’s Los Angeles circle have been given a blank casting of the Resonator to paint, mess with or otherwise embellish at their will.
