We are living in the mushroom renaissance.
This is a time where the humble mushroom is finally being celebrated in the fashion that it deserves for its versatility, nutritional value, and delicious flavor. From gourmet chefs to home cooks, people are discovering the benefits of incorporating mushrooms into their diets, and with advances in cultivation and production, more varieties are available than ever before.
Mushrooms are also gaining attention for their medicinal properties and potential to promote environmental sustainability. The mushroom renaissance is not only changing the way we eat, but it’s also expanding our understanding and appreciation of the natural world around us.
So I’m celebrating with a series of art pieces that are my adaptations of the worlds’ greatest paintings, reimagined in a world of mushrooms.
This is handcrafted composite work, no AI, from my imagination. In another lifetime pre-mushroom conservatory, I was a film poster artist and I still love finding every chance to explore creative realms and art history through creating art series like this.
