Botanical to Conceptual
Within this collection the two primary sides to our practice are seen.
Within one collection soft pastel is delicately and intricately worked into representations of fungal forms through close observation of photographs taken in the field, or used with kind permission. Each piece seeks to evoke memories of time spent in the natural environment whilst inviting the viewer to marvel at the beauty of this vast kingdom.
Within the second the viewer is asked to consider their own perceptions of their human-fungal relationships within our contemporary world whilst looking forward to a speculative Mycocenic future in which we ask, not what they can do for us, but what we can do for them.
But then there is also something that is smaller, more intimate: the final element of our work but also perhaps the most vital as it simply portrays time spent in woodland locations observing and immersing ourselves within the natural world.
