A collaboration with a robust patch of Amanita mushrooms found in my yard, the central image is actual spore prints. Also known as fly agaric, these mushrooms are mycorrhizal mostly with conifers. I celebrated this relationship by creating a frame of paper mycelium—the white tendrils found underground connecting to the roots of their companion trees. The spores have been sprayed with fixative, however they are not held fast to the paper and some dusting may occur.

Gallery pick-up only due to the fragility of the artwork. Handled with care, they will do fine hanging on the wall, but I do not recommend shipping them or jostling them around.
Spore prints are by nature somewhat ephemeral. While I have prints I made a year ago that still look the same, I do not believe them to be archival. Returns accepted within 30 days.
