Gavin Brown Enterprise: Gee Vaucher


Art of the portrait. Many have attempted, few have succeeded. Gee Vaucher's name belongs side by side with the art giants of the past and present, with those few who have succeeded and completed something relevant, compelling and provocative with portraiture. Pseudo-art created to appease the masses for huge commercial gain is not what I'm referring to but rather the kind of art that is beautiful due to simple fact of what it awakens upon the viewer emotionally, socially and even at times politically.

The exhibition at Passerby with the four portraits (and other works) by Gee Vaucher is a must see. Make the time and go see it!
