Mycelium

The beautiful art of the line can hold so many narratives. These sinuous, delicate and intricate lines are found in the simple mushroom. The round, organic shapes of mushrooms are fascinating to me and I use the printmaking process to harness this beauty in monoprinting. The process usually starts with using ink to create abstract 'landscapes' upon which I then print the mushrooms directly onto the paper. The final step is to work into the image with various media, letting the lines and shapes guide me. My intuition is usually guided by music or literature which either translates into the title or the types of marks I use.
