GAINES are Latham and Shelby Gaines: brothers in arms, art, and DNA. Born artists, raised in New Hampshire, their talents have manifested in a range of mediums including music, photography, design, and performance. Their work has travelled along with them to New Zealand, San Francisco, and NYC; always defying simple categorization.
GAINES transforms otherwise inanimate objects into beings with a story, a soundtrack for their lives, so to speak. Created from found objects, their sonic sculptures have been featured in several art shows. Most recently, their live performance of their original score in Ethan Hawke’s revival of Sam Shepard’s A Lie of the Mind earned them a Drama Desk Award nomination.
