1999

$5,000

About

In the acrylic painting 'Go-for Notations,' American artist Reginald K. Gee presents a humorous narrative in his unmistakable Neo-Expressionist style: a character, a man wearing a helmet riding or carrying a bicycle, appears three times in the composition – first riding a bicycle on a riverwalk, second running up a set of stairs, and third as a head with a bicycle wheel. The story is made clearer by the timestamped log entries along the left edge of the parchment, each notation revealing a moment in the delivery worker's day. Toward the bottom of the list, Gee has also included a map corresponding to the log entries, the locations on which seem to indicate this day-in-the-life is a complete construction of the artist rather than of a real place and real person. acrylic on parchment 32.88 x 27.88 inches, artwork 42.88 x 37.88 inches, frame Signed lower left Framed to conservation standards using archival materials including 100 percent rag matting; housed in a modern profile gold finish wood moulding. Artwork in excellent condition; some minor abrasions to surface of frame. Milwaukee-based artist Reginald K Gee is known for his visionary Neo-Expressionist style. Born in Milwaukee in 1964 to Native American and African American parents, he is an emerging tour de force in the contemporary and outsider art scenes. Gee’s interpretation of subject matter is unique, inventive and illustrates his command of expression in form, color and language. In his images, he explores a wide range of themes and subjects, including playful musicians, surreal vistas, mystical dreams and fantastic visions. He borrows from his heritage as an African American as well as a Native American, incorporating historical images, symbols, and numerology into his artwork. At the same time, Gee's paintings are figurative, abstract and narrative, expressing through the use of uninhibited color the artist's views of contemporary society. When asked how he learned about art Gee replied, "I didn't. I still haven't learned. You just do it." The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel described Gee's work as "tribal art-derived from Pop Culture and art magazines." In recent years, Gee has participated in dozens of shows including Soul of Black Folk and the Chicago Black Art Expo. Gee is influenced by Pablo Picasso, Willem De Kooning, Francis Bacon, Jean Michel Basquiat and David Salle.
