Artist: Bimbi Urquhart

Artist Notes: "Stronger" embodies the essence of Kintsugi, the Japanese art of "golden repair" - way of repairing broken pottery using gold. I wanted to create a portrait based on this same idea, about how the things that break us can make us stronger than before, once we have healed. I also love the philosophy of celebrating our flaws, highlighting our vulnerabilities instead of hiding them.

This multi-colour reduction linocut print on white paper showcases hand-printed purple and black caligo ink, hand-finished in gold on smooth, acid-free white paper (130gsm). The reduction process involves meticulously cutting the lino, followed by printing and drying the ink before repeating the cycle with each new colour.

Each print is part of a limited edition of seven, titled and signed for authenticity.
