Ragnar Kjartansson, Repent, 2020

Ragnar Kjartansson’s first collaboration with BORCH Editions simultaneously marks his first exposure to the medium of printmaking. It resulted in a suite of twenty-five etchings and seven large-scale woodcuts.
The suite of twenty-five etchings is a collection of self-contained vignettes; poetic, comical, sometimes absurd scenes combining image and text.
