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.”
