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.
