We are pleased to present a solo exhibition by the young English painter Christopher Gee. Gee's compact paintings are reminiscent of a collection of old photographs whose original context, their meanings and relationships, have long been lost to the past. Executed in a manner that is both painterly and graphic, his work has a naive simplicity that is both endearing in its directness, and also so...   [more]
