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.

About the paintings production

The work is painted 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 aluminum dowels to ensure the painting is rigid, allowing the works to be hung without the need for framing (if desired). Works are 24mm deep.
