Jens Ritter creates art in a similar fashion to songwriters weaving lyrics, where pure emotion takes reign and synchronistically orchestrates a piece from which tune is born – he communicates his feelings silently and manually through the machinations of his hands via constructing exquisitely individual electric guitars, of which he is both sculptor and conductor. Rock and roll masterpieces materialize beneath his inspiration’s gaze, showcasing not only a life led through the permutations of song, but also, the material constructions of an instrument manifested by his imagination at any given point in time. Perpetually lifted by music, Ritter has constructed an homage to the sanctity of sound with his latest series Sleeping Beauties, a specialized composition of electric guitars that are sealed off from playing for 100 years, their voices squelched until a future day when they can be unleashed as virtual heirlooms of art and the creative impetus. Ritter’s limited-edition guitars are world renowned and share space in the private collections of many music aficionados, including Lady Gaga.
