Spit bite and aquatint on Rives cream BFK.
Mark Mahaffey, Master Printer.

"Cornucopia created an important intersection between my rubber stamp drawings and my installations and is part of a larger investigation using the the rubber stamp imagery. In the Garden: Cornucopia, a two-plate color etching and spit bite, is a bleed edge measuring 35 X 25". The works recall a time when the feminine was sacred and women were truly revered. The mysteries of fecundity and the life force are re-enacted through rituals that honor the sacred feminine. The visual reference to rich textiles and wall coverings may appear to give the work a sentimental edge but that is neatly overridden by the powerful images of an active feminine that knows no bounds allowing the work to sustain a sense of irony more than anything else. These intaglio prints created an important intersection between my digital prints and my installations."
