Featured in LineWorks – Lee Gainer

Lee Gainer, a full-time practicing artist living and working in the DC metro region, takes snapshots of gatherings, celebrations, and other notable moments and translates them into detailed line drawings. Using a computer and a steady hand, Gainer overlays these drawings to create visual puzzles of intersecting lines that examine how memories are constructed and recalled.

“My artistic process is representative of the phases I believe are used to develop memories: the perception manufactured from expectation, the details recorded from experience, and the incompletely distinct recollection. The integrated result that becomes our memory is influenced and overwritten by different bits of information created from each of these steps. My works leverage this internal process using visual insinuation to simultaneously present the individually-meaningful moment and the universally-shared familiar experience.” – Lee Gainer
