It’s small but perfectly formed 6cm x 13cm  (approx) and printed on handmade, heavyweight Bhutanese paper. The printing and colouring processes mean that each print is unique. It’s a signed, numbered edition of 41. For more images and details visit: shop.chrisbourkeart.com

Tougher than Death

Artist proof of Tougher Than Death

New to my Etsy Shop are these black and white, artist proofs (one off linocut prints that are signed but not yet part of an edition so marked ‘AP’) of ‘Tougher than Death‘. This print is about the eternal nature of the human soul. Each one is unique due to the printing process, creating a heavily textured finish. Click the image above for more detail.

Also now available are these one-off coloured versions, printed on hand-spray-painted backgrounds, layering multiple colours for an truly unique effect.

All of the Tougher Than Death prints are printed on 80gsm 43x61cm Japanese paper.
