About

RETREAT ROOM is an original oil pastel drawing on brown paper grocery bag by the self taught African American artist Reginald K. Gee, born April 28, 1964, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Gee is known for his Visonary Art filled with comical, expressive faces, figures, and colorful, surreal landscapes and seascapes. He is of African and Native American (Blackfoot/Choctaw) descent. RETREAT ROOM depicts a standing black haired female figure, her back facing the viewer, entering a Mid Century Modern styled room with two dark blue round windows, a hanging green ivy plant in the corner, a single cross leg folding table with one modern lamp placed in the center - a quiet, private place to gather one's thoughts, meditate and relax = Stress Relief ! RETREAT ROOM is in excellent condition, UV protection archival framing, natural wood dark grey finish frame. Drawing size - 16.75 x 11.75 in Frame size - 23 x 17.75 in Year - 1997 According to Contemporary American folk art: the Balsley Collection: “His paintings are figurative, abstract, surreal and narrative; they express, through the use of uninhibited color, the artist's views of contemporary society.” In this book, Gee is quoted as saying, “A good piece of art is like a splendid city. It will continually offer and you hardly receive the entirety." Upscale Magazine featured Gee in its April 2010 issue, “A Man Apart. Reginald Gee Draws Inspiration From The Human Experience.”
