Chanterelles

Artist Store: MushroomArt.ie

125.00

I found my first chanterelles in a nearby wood in August. Their rich yellow stood out against the dark path margins. I got envious looks from some passing foragers during my walk.

They are highly regarded by enthusiasts and make a great addition to any dish containing mushrooms.

Gillian Duggan creates unique paintings using wild mushrooms and her passion for nature and art is visible in her work.

Working with her garden mushrooms, she harnesses their spore dispersal action to create these individual patterns. Some patterns are mirror images of the mushrooms’ gills and others are more abstract when she adds air currents to the process creating a sense of movement, fluidity and, sometimes, playfulness.

Her work reflects the juxtaposition of decay and life, stillness and motion as nature shapes the world we inhabit. Mushrooms and fungi recycle the dead and resupply the building blocks of life. Nothing is ever still. Motion is everywhere.

Each piece of Gillian’s work is unique and original.

Her medium is spores which are dried, fixed, framed, sealed and ready to hang.

Gillian lives in the foothills of the Dublin mountains surrounded by trees, birds, wild animals and, of course, mushrooms.
