Through the pronounced use of light and shadow and precise imagery, Malcolm Rains’ triptych The Three Graces seeks a mystical or conceptual connection with the viewer. Each linen painting in this triptych is named for one of the three goddesses or Graces representing grace, charm and beauty: Thalia (right panel); Aglaea (left panel); Euphrosyne (centre). With studies in classical Greek art, architecture and mythology, Malcolm Rains explores balance, harmony and austerity in his elegant black and white still life paintings. Each painting in the triptych is 54 x 45 inches. Framed dimensions of each panel are 55 x 46 inches. 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.
