About

Malcolm Rains explores harmony and austerity in this poised still life painting of bent white paper on a dark burnt umber ground. Through the pronounced use of light and shadow and trompe l'oeil realism, Rains’ work seeks a mystical or conceptual connection with the viewer. The title of this painting, Cyclades refers to a group of islands in the Aegean Sea, southeast of mainland Greece. Framed dimensions are 13 x 19 inches. This work is depicted paired with another painting by Rains, Aphrodisium (2017) that is available separately. Born in England in 1947, Malcolm Rains emigrated to Canada in 1955. After studies in architecture at the University of Toronto and University of Detroit he completed a degree at the Ontario College of Art. Rains has been exhibited extensively throughout notable institutions across Canada including the Art Gallery of Ontario, Winnipeg Art Gallery, The Power Plant (Toronto) and the Art Gallery of Hamilton. His work is held in many private, corporate and public collections including the Art Gallery of Hamilton and Global Affairs Canada.
