By Christopher Gee
Take a look
“Christopher Gee’s small scale works, on paper, are presented for the first time in a collection of 80 paintings spanning from 2011 onwards. The works are divided into three exhibitions within the book. His graphic yet naïve paintings take us on a fragmented journey through dark forested landscapes, archaic buildings and towers conveying his key themes of silence and solitude.
Gee’s influences range from Folk Art, Northern Renaissance paintings and the Romantic landscapes of Caspar David Freidrich.”
Often Christopher Gee’s work explores stillness, and quiet, isolated scenes. When he is not painting, he can be found uncovering historic and forgotten landmarks and overlooked landscapes. To see his paintings in printed form takes the viewer into a document of a fractured journey of what once was or what could be.
