About Gee Vaucher

East Lon­don born Gee Vaucher started gain­ing recog­ni­tion pro­duc­ing polit­i­cally out­spo­ken record cov­ers for anarcho-punk band Crass in the late 1970s. Her work became a strong influ­ence for protest art as well as the punk and anar­chist aes­thetic of her time. Using her diverse inter­est in all forms of art, she pro­duced paint­ings and col­lages that exposed the absur­dity and hypocrisy of ‘civilised’ soci­ety with frank and often dis­turb­ing imagery.

After Crass dis­banded Vaucher moved away from overt world pol­i­tics and started pro­duc­ing work of a more per­sonal nature, explor­ing the psy­cho­log­i­cal diver­sity and delema of social inter-relationships. Vaucher’s work is hard-hitting with a grip­ping aes­thetic and has been exhib­ited inter­na­tion­ally as well as being included in a num­ber of books and publications.
