Frank Gee Artist, avid outdoorsman & lover of nature
Frank Gee's oriental heritage is an integral part of his life, as well as his art. He believes that the simple and yet perfect rhythms of nature are reflected in the traditions of the orient. As an avid fisherman, canoeist, hiker and backpacker, Frank is intimately acquainted with nature – the source of all his art. Gee comments, "Simplicity would have to be the word that most fully characterizes my art. As human beings living in a fast-moving, aggressive society, we tend to over-complicate matters. We become so concerned with details that we fail to comprehend the true essence – the simple truth - of the life which surrounds us. The oriental tradition of art is based upon communication through the simplicity of nature. This philosophy of an art of simple forms, subtle suggestion, and natural subject matter has most greatly influenced my concept of art."
