Mushroom Art from the End of the World
This is a bit of artwork I was working on during a time of extreme energy. This work was created from the beginning of March and completed on April 11, 2020. It was a bizarre time not just for me personally, but of course it was for the whole world. When I began this work, I started it in a different world than I finished it in. While the subject is that of terrestrial plant magick, the meaning to me is something far beyond. Working on this artwork was a way to focus my attention and energy which helped me to navigate the intensity of the time.
I titled the work “Magia De La Tierra Y Hongos” which means “Magic of the Earth and Fungus”. The piece is a sort of painting, drawing, and collage. We can just call it “Mixed Media”. Elements are drawn on watercolor paper, then cut out and collaged in layers. I find that it looks better when I paint the edges of the paper black so it makes kind of an outline around that part. When I adhere the element to the surface, I use a bit of wax paper to keep things from sticking and weigh it down with a hefty stack of old Encyclopedia Britannica Volumes.
