On the occasion of her first institutional solo exhibition, Luchita Hurtado has produced two Limited Edition prints. Throughout her career, Hurtado has created an extensive body of paintings, drawings and prints that bear witness to a dedicated and intense engagement with the world around her. Titled I Live I Die I Will Be Reborn, the exhibition captures the artist’s intimate and mystical visual language that is underpinned by our connectivity with and responsibility to the natural world.
This Limited Edition (edition of 30 + 2APs) has been produced with printmaker, Jacob Samuel, and is inspired by one of Hurtado’s ‘birthing’ works, a new series of paintings made in the last twelve months and presented for the first time at the Serpentine Galleries. Continuing the inversion of perspectives that Hurtado has experimented with throughout her career, such as looking down or across her own body, this monochromatic, hand-printed work depicts a pregnant body in the process of giving birth, executed through expressionistic contours and washes of light and dark.
Please note: As this is a framed Edition, please allow a 2-3 week turnaround for the bespoke frame to be made until your order is ready.
