Miriam Kagan "To Step on the Flowers" Framed Intaglio Print
Etched into a copper plate and printed on handmade Indian watercolor paper.
This image is from a photo I took in the tulip fields of South Holland in April of 2018 . I was inspired to make it into an etching after seeing an exhibit of intaglio prints by Salvador Dali a few days later in Bruge, Belgium. This encompasses how I feel about the beauty of etchings in which you take a tedious, rough process of making a print of the softness of flowers, and how they bloom.
It taught me that we bloom the most from the darkest places because it's there that we find forgiveness, generosity and growth.
Framed in a 10"w x 12"h x 3.5"d floating frame.
