“Since 1970 I have recorded rivers in many countries, not to document them, but rather for the special state of mind and body which the sounds of moving water create when one listens intently to the complex mesh of rhythms and pitches.”

-Annea Lockwood

For its inaugural installation, beauty salon presents an iteration of an ongoing collaboration between LA-based artists Ellie Pyle and L. Castelvetro. This work grows out of their extensive correspondence and draws from ideas of celestial motion, painterly notions of the representation of 3D space on a 2D surface, the music of Baroque composer Heinrich Schütz, and explorations of non-linear co-temporalities. This show is comprised of 6 paintings, 6 co-existing synthesized sound environments, and several smaller works.
