Jessica Craig-Martin- Gossip Girl Art

The internet-based gallery “20×200”, founded by Jen Bekman, is happy to present new limited editions of work  by Craig-Martin, exclusive to ” 20 x 200″ . They  are all archival pigment prints signed by the artist. In the sizes from 8″ x 10 inches up to 24″ x 30 inches.

“Couger Friends”

Jessica Craig-Martin is one of the most famous artists in the US, specially for her cropped images of the decadent lifstyle to the “rich and famous”.

“I feel that a well examined detail can tell the whole story better than a pulled back, general shot of a scene. The angle of a shot can convey the particular combination of levity and anxiety one can feel in social situations. My art dealer once called it my “drunken lens.” The photographs that work best for me have a sense of human fragility. Unrealized dreams; our perverse optimism as we swim upstream like salmon in order to mate, find love, security, money, power, to retain youth against all odds and evidence. One is never so naked as when dressed for a party”

Jessica Craig-Martin

The “20 x 200”  delievers prints for a nice amount, so everyone can fulfill their desire to purchase a piece of art.  In 2003,  CEO Jen Bekman opened her little gallery on the Lower East Side, with a mission of supporting emergin artists and collectors ,and also making art available!

Ruvan Wijesooriya Part III- Gossip Girl Art

In Gossip Girl, Gossip Girl Art, Season 3 on October 30, 2011 at 4:11 pm

Chuck Bass’s apartment at the “Empire”

Many of the works by Ruvan W. featured in the show have been exhibited earlier. The photography above to the left has been exhibited at “Since forever is gone”   in New York, 2009.  Ruvan Wijesooriya is known for his exhibitions where the audience may take the work home. In that way, Wijesooriya says that an image is never for him to keep. It is also a pretty cool thing to do, and really artistic.

“All of Ruvan’s pictures remind me of that feeling: That your life could be
saved if you could get there right then. That you’re geographically fucked,
and it’s all happening right now, somewhere else, without you. There is an
enormous amount of intimacy in them, and promise, and intrusion.”
