stunning black & white paintings created by Gee were
so realistic that many thought they were done by photomontage.
The example shown above originally appeared as cover art
for the CRASS single release Nagasaki Nightmare.
In this searing anti-war artwork, US President Ronald
Reagan and Soviet Premier Leonid Brezhnev stand with world
leaders on the pulverized remains of Nagasaki... the charred
body of a young boy at their feet.
visited Los Angeles on a limited speaking tour in the
year 2000, and I had the pleasure of talking with her
briefly on the subject of art and politics. I was pleased
to learn that she is still very active as an artist
and is now undertaking a new series of paintings. These
new works are quite a departure from her old style, and
are faintly reminiscent of the works of Francis Bacon.
Before our brief encounter came to an end, I gave Gee
a few of my own artworks as a token of appreciation, and
we then said our good-byes. Gee now lives and works at
Dial House, a sprawling anarchist collective located
in Essex, England.
