Conduit Gallery presents Christopher Gee: "Elsewhere" opening reception
Conduit Gallery will present "Elsewhere," the first U.S. exhibition of work by London-based artist Christopher Gee. Working with a muted palette, Gee creates small scale paintings that interrupt one’s sense of time and place. Gee’s subjects, animal and pallid human alike, are refined in their unwavering gaze. Darkly stylized renderings of British and Northern European landscapes display a reverence for the interaction between architectural structures and the environments they inhabit. These portraits and landscapes are linked together under celestial bodies in constant eclipse. The consistent depiction of the sun as a sliver of itself lends yet another layer of mysticism to Gee’s oeuvre, which resides firmly in the eerie.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through November 25.
