Elsewhere, in the quiet provinces the artist can easily find himself
surrounded by melancholias. Lost in thought he sits at the secluded
windows of his medieval digs, a strange twilight flowing all about
him, and without so much as stirring he sends his daydreams out onto
the sweeping landscape. No one comes. Nothing disturbs his reverie.
An inexpressible silence rules the surrounds.
London based artist Christopher Gee (b.1987) creates compact paintings influenced by Folk Art, Northern Renaissance painting and German Romanticism.
Often his work explores stillness, and quiet, isolated scenes. When he is not painting, he can be found uncovering historic and forgotten landmarks and overlooked landscapes.
