Hand painted in Indian ink, “First Impressions” by Cain 40 x 30 inches (102 x 76 cm).

A modern interpretation of Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy from the book Pride and Prejudices. Century-old book pages from Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudices, provide the backdrop to the painting, providing an interplay between the hand painted subjects and books narrative.

The painting is named First Impressions giving an interesting sentiment to the work.  First Impressions was also the original title to Pride and Prejudices before being renamed at the time of the book's publication.

This painting and vintage book pages used, are mounted onto quality canvas and robust stretchers and are ready to hang.  Often in preference, these work can be hung without framing.

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. Books only come alive when they are read. The passing of time and trends will shape a reader’s interpretation of a book. These are often reflected as annotations that a reader leaves behind. Instead of an annotation Cain interprets and paints a contemporary presence of the reader. Cain's art attempts to show compositions that radiate a sense of interaction between the narrative and the reader's image. The subjects are 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 book. Interestingly, this ageing will be observed by future viewers of the painting. These works are hand painted in Indian ink onto pages from vintage editions of classic stories. The pages and subjects are carefully selected to bring relevance to Cain's work. The paintings are mounted on robust wooden stretchers and canvas ready to hang on delivery. Cain
