Christopher Gee

Christopher Gee was born in Portsmouth, U.K. in 1987. Gee received his Bachelors at Camberwell College of Art, 2010, and his drawing Masters at Wimbledon College of Art, 2012. He currently lives and works on the Thames Estuary.


Gee’s 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.


His graphic yet naive-looking paintings, belie the hand of a skilled artist whose references mine the historical cannon of art. They conjure places both real and imagined, taking us on a fragmented journey though forested landscapes, waterways and vernacular architecture as dusk falls or under a moonlit night. The intimacy and execution of these paintings convey themes of silence, solitude and the wonder of the natural world.


His influences include Northern Renaissance painting, Folk Art, the romantic landscapes of Casper David Friedrich and the paintings of Alfred Wallace. He also takes inspiration from the novels of Herman Hesse and W.G. Sebald. 


Gee has exhibited in London and the U.S. and has worked with Paul Smith, Liberty London and Paul Helbers. His work is also held in private collections around the world.
