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”

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!

Craig-Martin has worked for Vogue and Vanity Fair, and has become celebrity artist. She is also on the board of Directors at The Art Production Fund who has curated “the Van der Woodsen loft” for Gossip Girl.

The artist rarely let the audience identify the subject’s faces, and she also photographs “the moment”, or part of clothes or a party. By doing so, Craig-Martin tells details about the society’s superficial   way of living or thinking, and also their obsession of the surface.
