Clea Christakos-Gee is a Toronto-based artist holding a BFA in Photography Studies from Ryerson University.

.

Her practice is grounded in analog photography and collage with a significant focus on portraiture. 

.

.

.

She often considers the representation of gender and the tenuous nature of our performed identities, in the past looking specifically at female, adolescent, and familial identity.

Clea is forever attracted to the materiality of the photographic medium and explores this using collage as a deconstructive tool.

She gathers, cuts apart, and composes printed matter in order to play with visual metaphor, reframe archetypal symbols of desire, and embrace the incidental.
