Mush Head #2
Oil on Linen Canvas
This oil painting features tattooed human anatomy with Shimeji mushrooms for a head. The tattoos add a secondary, curving plane of art in addition to the canvas, creating a narrative and adding a thin layer of identity to the figure. The painting is enigmatic and speaks to the viewer on a deep, personal level. The series was examining humans and nature. What would life be like as a fungi?
