Eugenie Lee is an emerging interdisciplinary artist with a focus on medical science and her own chronic pain disease. Her works convey the bio-psycho-social experiences of pain-related illness through visual metaphor.
Lee communicates her narratives through sculptures, installations and paintings. Her works explore both the subjective experience of patients and the impersonal clinical methodologies of modern science. Fascinated by the complexities of chronic pain, the artist interlaces imaginative psychodramas with the latest medical research into formats that can be grasped and shared by others.
Over the past few years Lee has been involved in a number of innovative collaborative projects, working with some of the world’s leading scientific pain researchers. These explorations not only broaden Lee’s search for ways to better promote understanding of this silent yet surprisingly widespread illness, but also expand upon an area of medicine that science itself is still learning to fathom – the workings of the human brain and mind.
