Lee Gainer’s work is organic in it’s appearance, like a field of flowers, but created from many bits of man-made materials. Each took just over a month to build. Pieces contain a variety of recycled - upcycled - materials such as fabric, paper, felt, foil, caps, carpet, metal, plastic, styrafoam, dried paint, beads, padding and cardboard, that have been hand-rolled into circles and swirls. Beautiful way to turn ordinary everyday objects into art.
Lee’s work reminds me of a piece we saw while on vacation on Cape Cod. This American Flag is made up of bits of flotsom which washed ashore on the Cape. Beautiful garbage.
