This is what the artist told Chic Report after the shoot at Silvercup Studios:

“The cameo experience was very interesting and fun. When I work on a film, I’m usually on the other side of the lens. I have known most of the cast for some time now, and they are all a gifted bunch….The scene is quick & I was still a bit nervous on the set, which I guess is normal, but Casey Fremont (from Art Production Fund) was there with me and I was cast as myself, being surrounded by some works from my debut show, “Synthesis,” a set made to look like a solo show of mine during a montage scene, and the dialogue was put in on the fly.”

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.”

Marilyn Minter (Born: 1948 in Shreveport, Louisiana but raised in Florida. Currently lives and works in New York).

Minter helds a master of fine art degree from Syracuse University. She  now teaches in fine art at the School of Visual Arts in New York.

While she was student, Marilyn Minter created a series of photographic studies with her drug -addicted  mother among the objects. Later she started to incorporate the sexuality from the Pop-derived pictures, and imagery from the porn industry. Her works  often include sexuality, erotic imagery, and a touch of “urban glam”.  Minter uses the good old darkroom in the process, and is not a fan of digital manipulation.

Marlin Minter is one of the greatest and most important living temporary artist, and is widely known among collectors and institutions.
