Editorial Reviews


"In its original form, Gee V's work is intricate and tactile, and while the imagery is sometimes almost overwhelming, the primary concerns are those of the painter; dealing with form and space. Mere newsprint would hardly seem able to do justice to its subtle tones. When the work is printed, the space becomes more simple and the graphic images take on another life. The visual concerns are those of delivery, and the message is clear. Painstakingly executed and almost private paintings are transformed into powerful illustrations by the brilliance of Gee V's vision. While the stenches of corruption and injustice do linger, it is an honorable thing to point or even lift a finger" -- Ian Dury

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Thomas Coffeen on October 26, 1999
Format: Paperback
The work in this book has a great deal of artistic clarity and uncompromising political awareness. In many of the works, recognizable images of the contemporary savagery foisted on people by institutions are placed in the immediate vicinity of the icons of comfort and complacency that define our lives as consumers and tools of the power-mad. The collages are filled with visual information yet immediate and affecting. Gee Vaucher creates a stunning balance of craft and outrage that left me feeling depressed and guilty.
