From the exhibition Z2:

'Z2 is the second collaborative installation of painting and mixed media works by JPW3 and Sayre Gomez, and continues where their first, ZZYZX, left off. Presented in 2011 at Las Cienegas Projects, ZZYZX used an associative, poetic logic to summon the imaginary of ZZYZX Road, a mythologized yet actual location at the end of the alphabet (and in the Mojave Desert)—where hints of vibration, noise, speed, thievery, ‘Arab drift’ car culture, linguistic nonsense, and other forms of general lawlessness might intermingle. The artists, who are longtime friends and work in neighboring studios, have overlapping tendencies that bind their work, culled from a shared set of cultural aesthetics and a growing ambivalence toward the act of appropriation. Yet it is their differing attitudes toward their mediums – and to the tactility of the image itself – that is key to their new collaborative dialogue.'

Z2, the book, is a collection, a hefty collection, of new and found images, photogrpahs, assemblages and other bits from the two artists working together.
