About artist/note:

Although Malcolm Rains graduated from the Ontario College of Art with a major in sculpture, he is perhaps better known for his still life paintings. Rains’ practice has been to create a series of works focused on a single subject, such as the pears shown here.

Warm lighting and a controlled palette result in canvases that evoke a richness and restraint reminiscent of works by the Old Masters.
