Gee Vaucher

Gee Vaucher, born Dagenham, East London, 1945. Her work with Anarcho-punk band Crass was seminal to the 'protest art' of the 1980s. Vaucher has always seen her work as a tool for social change, in the foreword to her 1999 retrospective collection "Crass Art And Other Postmodernist Monstrosities" Ian Dury writes;

"In its original form, Gee's work is intricate and tactile, and while the imagery is sometimes almost overwhelming, the primary concerns are those of a painter; dealing with form and space. Mere newsprint would hardly do justice to it's subtle tones. When the work is printed, the space becomes more simple and the graphic images take on a different life. The concerns are those of delivery, and the message is clear."
