'He Binds Up The Broken-hearted' Print
A detailed print of my original painting titled ‘He Binds Up The Broken-hearted'
Over the past few years, Kintsugi has become incredibly symbolic to me of my relationship with the Savior. Kintsugi (金継ぎ, "golden joinery") is a Japanese pottery technique, where cracks in the pottery are put back together with a gold lacquer. The cracks are considered a beautiful part of the pottery’s history. Something that has made the pot even more beautiful and valuable than it was before. The Savior has done this for me time and time again. He takes the parts of my life that feel shattered, and turns them into something more beautiful than I ever imagined.
As I go through life and experience hard things, I am often filled with gratitude for those difficulties, because they have brought me so close to Christ. I know that He suffered for all of my individual pain. He knows all of my experiences, my trials, my difficulties, my fears, my brokenness. And because He knows my pain so deeply, He has the power to heal and bind me up in ways that no one else can. My brokenness connects me with Him and makes me one with Him. I would go through all the heartbreak again, because it is how I came to know and love Him.
In this painting, you can see that the Kintsugi connects Christ to the person He is hugging. I really wanted to make the person He is hugging abstract enough that anyone could imagine that it is them. You can’t tell if it is a man or woman, you can’t tell what skin color they have or what they look like. I hope that when you see this piece you can imagine that He is hugging you, binding up your broken heart, healing you and helping you become something more beautiful than you could ever imagine.
I use a beautiful, heavy-weight, acid-free paper for my prints. Prints come unframed and signed by the artist. All of my prints are border-less.
Each print is placed in a clear plastic sleeve to protect from moisture while traveling to you, and mailed in a rigid envelope. See product information below for more details.
Colors may vary due to monitor settings. All sales are final.
4x6”, 5x7”, 8x10” and 11x14” are printed on a beautiful matte 80# paper. These sizes are placed in cellophane sleeves and shipped in a protective stay-flat envelope.
16x20” and 18x24" are printed on archival fine art paper. These sizes are rolled and shipped in a heavy duty mailing tube.
I provide bulk pricing for my 4x6" prints. If you need to purchase more than 100 prints, please email me! If you purchase 100+ prints, the price per print is $0.95.
Canvas prints are made lovingly by hand in the United States, and are shipped directly from my supplier to you. Reflective gold is NOT able to be added to the canvases due to the way they are made and the protective coating used on them. The gold colors in canvases will be a flat gold color as shown in the listing images.
Unframed Canvases have a wrapped image and a 1.5" edge. They have a sawtooth hanger in the back for easy installation.
Framed canvas prints come in either a white, black, or gold floater frame. Floater frames create the illusion that the artwork is floating inside of it. They elevate the artwork and the perfect finishing touch. Framed canvases have a 1.5" edge and come with a hanging wire in the back for easy installation.
Canvases are printed on thick archival grade, poly-cotton canvas. The canvas is pH neutral, acid-free, and will not yellow over time.
Canvases are perfect for gifting!
