I am a big fan of this plum colour, I feel it is calming and peaceful despite so much movement in some of the mushrooms.
I used a few russulas or brittlegills – named because they break so easily.  Lots of different varieties grow under some birch trees by the gate every summer and autumn. They appear every year without fail albeit a bit later than usual this year on account of the dry weather. I combined both these lovely colourful mushrooms with some domecaps and cavaliers.

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.
