Artist's description:

“Lovers Roam” aka “Loves Roam in the Streets of Cambridge” by Cain 40 x 30 inches (102 x 76 cm).

Lovers Roam reflects on Lord Byron, and his chivalrous if not somewhat promiscuous nature, while at Trinity College, Cambridge University. The works are painted on to century-old book pages from Lord Byron poem, Don Juan, providing an apt interplay between the subjects and books narrative.

About the Screen Print

The screen print is produced on original book pages which are over 75 years of age and are mounted on using cotton duck canvas using kiln dried quality wood stretchers. The stretchers use aluminium dowels to ensure the painting is rigid, allowing the works to be hung without the need for framing (if desired). Works are 24mm deep.

About Cain’s Work

Cain creates beautiful and intriguing art imagery by painting carefully composed figures on vintage book pages. Any space between the figures exposes a background, which gives them context and narrative. The subjects are always turned away from the observer, seemingly engaged in the narrative, which remains magically elusive. As time continues to pass, the contemporary presence of the reader will age along with the older book pages. Interestingly, this ageing will be observed by future viewers of the painting.
