The Sky Looked Different
Living a farming life, I spend much of my time outside working and also exploring the nearby fields, woodlands and shorelines. The rhythm of expansion, decay, climate and atmospheric variations that I experience, along with the plants, animals and people living inter-connectedly in these complex environments, are often my subjects and the source of my inspiration.
Mushrooms, seemingly mundane, frequently living out their brief existence, hidden in the underbrush in apparent solitude, are often connected to an immense unseen symbiotic mycorrhizal social network.
These sensitive organisms, are said to be,”among earths greatest marvels.” They provide food, life saving medicine and some even possess “magical” power over the mind. They communicate using nature’s intricate language. I’m learning to “listen” to that voice, spoken in sometimes obvious, but more often subtle, transitory fluctuations. We all might experience and possibly overlook these fleeting moments, where delicate nuances of light mix with the shadowy awe infused atmosphere.
The mushrooms in this body of work stand like a beacons, calling our attention, inviting us to glimpse, into the labyrinth.
