MUSHROOM AQUATIC

2021-2022

Mushroom Aquatic is inspired by the finding of a species of underwater mushroom. "Until recently, conventional wisdom held that gilled mushrooms did not exist underwater. In 2005, a Psathyrella, a new species was discovered in the clear, flowing, pristine waters of the Rogue River near Crater Lake, Oregon. This discovery opens up a new branch of aquatic mycology, and raises many questions. How many other mushroom species grow underwater?" -Mycelium Running 

 

My paintings are made from 100% organic materials. My painting palette is a botanical painting palette made up of fruits, flowers, spices, roots, mushrooms and other organic materials. I often use mycelium in my paintings as a part of the design or grown into the paper. Click on the image to learn the materials recipe for each.

Mycelium as a medium needs soil microbes to break down and will fully compost in 30 days when broken up into small pieces. It will break down in the water in 180 days. If you leave it outside in a solid shape, it will weather and take a few years to break down. It will last indefinitely indoors in stable conditions. These paintings have been "Grown with Ecovative™ Technology".
