The Glorious Art House
You always think you are alone in this universe. You are not.
When Jain was confronted by the cruellest hand of fate, and was told she had incurable multiple sclerosis, she soon discovered all her wonderful friends had her back. Their eyes were on her. Every single day. They surround her with love and reassurance.
This show is a result of all that encouragement and constant love.
Seek the eyes in the paintings…
Jain loves red. She spent many years in hot, Latin countries, and this shines through in the bold colour and lively temperatures of her paintings. She has lived, and studied all around the world: BSc.pure Maths Glasgow University; Art Instituto, San Miguel; Belles Artes, Mexico; private tutors for oils & watercolour USA & UK.
Her love of pure mathematics pours out of her art.
Painting is her positive choice to beat the MS demon. She hopes her work inspires other MS warriors to see a creative way forward.
Abstract acrylics & oils are geometric & expressionistic.

Since graduating from the same degree course in Cardiff in 2001, Paul Muncaster and Peter Swales kept in intermittent contact but ultimately went their own ways- Paul going on to pursue a career in education that led to him living and working in the Falkland Islands, Peter into mental health support work in North East Scotland. A fortuitous reunion in the South West of England led to them rekindling their friendship and artistic connection. This show is a result of that reconnection.
