‘Repare! Por Favor’ – A signed, limited edition 26 colour print with 2 glazes by artist Barbara Rae. This print was created specially in order to raise awareness and funds for the British Heart Foundation, as part of the BHF Breath of Life portfolio. All profits go to the British Heart Foundation.
‘Repare! Por Favor’ showcases Rae's talent as a colourist. Her use of text in the piece was inspired by graffiti that she had seen in Spain, a country in which she has found much artistic stimulation. The text embedded in the image seems to act as a command, ordering the heart to repair itself: Repare! Below this magic word we see a heart at the moment of impact when its two halves are reunited. The section of printed text towards the top of the piece is in fact a list of artists' signatures, implying that art can help to mend a broken heart.
