Fancy sitting on Ryan Gosling? How about Brad Pitt or George Clooney? No, I don’t have a hotline to the stars nor do they owe me a few favours, this is a new furniture concept by renowned fashion and celebrity photographer Jennifer Graylock, who has created the first installment of her Face Chairs Art Series Collection (http://www.facechairs.com/). These iconic chairs are Graylock’s humorous intent to give fans, and non-fans alike, a chance to have their very own celebrity moment. To create her fabulous Face Chair Art Series, Jennifer takes a mid century-inspired bentwood chair which is carefully restored, and then she covers the seat with an exclusive photo from her celebrity collection. Jennifer says: “In creating this limited edition, signed, art statements, I select and carefully restore visually interesting vintage and modern designer chairs in a variety of shapes and pair them with celebrity images from my collection shot at pivotal moments in each figure’s life.”
‘Face Chairs’ is a great and humorous way of expressing Jennifer’s art that combines her world-class photography and love of furniture design and restoration. Her roots in furniture design extend back to helping her grandfather restore and craft furniture when she was a young child. The collection takes a creative laugh with each celebrity to become part of his or her fans home. Graylock unveiled her first iconic pieces at RAPT art&design in Naples, Florida, where she featured Oscar winner Angelina Jolie’s now notorious “leg pose” and Oscar nominee George Clooney immediately after learning of his Oscar nomination, creating international buzz from fans and non-fans alike as well as the celebrities she’s captured.
For those who are not aware of Jennifer’s work, The Jennifer Graylock Photographic Collection is considered to be one of the largest topical photo archive of celebrities and fashion images in existence. She has a vast collection of fine art photography and her work has won numerous awards, including the Phillip Eisenberg Award, and she has exhibited in numerous critically acclaimed, one-person and group shows. Currently available in the Face Chairs Art Series are Barack Obama, George Clooney, Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Anna Wintour, Katie Holmes, Ryan Gosling, Lady Gaga, Sophie Vergara and Jennifer Lopez.
