Little Mushroom Spore, 2020
linocut, french inks, on Fabriano paper
This little print of a mushroom represents “Covid” in so much it finds a host with a cough or a sneeze, it drops from the body like a spore to grow into the next body and in turn spread and create a pandemic the modern world has never experienced. The mushroom is much the same it grows rapidly in a confined space, spread by its’ spores and accelerates in damp and warm conditions, if the condition is right the mushroom will pop out everywhere, but if not it will just disappear. As if it were never there.
