OTHER: Frank Gee describes his art: “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 on 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.”
