Los Angeles painter Marco Zamora will show new work this Saturday, October 22nd at New Image Art Gallery in West Hollywood.

Zamora's new paintings focus on the randomness of a swap meet, which he visited every week while in the creative process, watching how goods are bought, sold in one of the purest most ancient forms of capitalism and trade, the bazaar. Despite being elemental to trade, the humble swap meet is often disrespected in a society where bankers and CEOs define the value of exchange. Zamora finds the beauty in both the arrangement of objects and the way they are traded between people. The objects appear and reappear; their lifecycle is documented in abstraction, and the exchange between vendor, buyer, and now artist and viewer is continuous.

“I am interested in this idea of these people finding and selling these random things coming from the trash, the street, yard sales, estate sales - anywhere they can get things to sell, some valuable some not. The arrangement is very important. The dumping, and others meticulously leaning goods for sale on show. I have been documenting this particular action, set up. I love it, and its randomness is even more exciting.”- Marco Zamora
