Drawing inspiration from northern renaissance painting, folk art, and romantic landscapes, British artist, Christopher Gee, reveals his exceptional artistry in this acrylic on paper titled, "Moonlit Hare 1." It is one of several hare paintings available. All newly framed and signed by the artist.
Christopher Gee (b.1987) is a British artist from Portsmouth, England. He lives and works on the Thames Estuary, Essex. His small scale works on paper explore stillness and isolated scenes. His paintings are informed by historic houses and landmarks, often forgotten or overlooked sites of familiarity and intrigue. Walking and collecting are key to his practice.
His graphic yet naïve-looking paintings, conjure places both historical and imagined, taking us on a fragmented journey through forested landscapes, vernacular architecture, and archaic towers. The intimacy and execution of these paintings convey themes of silence and solitude.
His influences include Northern Renaissance painting, Folk Art, the Romantic landscapes of Caspar David Friedrich and the naive paintings of Alfred Wallis. He also takes inspiration from the novels of Hermann Hesse and W.G. Sebald.
Gee has sold his work to clients such as Paul Smith and Liberty London as well as showing at Paris Fashion Week in 2019 in collaboration with menswear brand UNIFORME-Paris. His work is also held in private collections around the world.
