Mycelium Drawing

Charcoal Pencil on transparent paper, Marianne Slevin, March 2010

I have been painting using different layers for a long time so now I am using the paper to create the layers instead. I am very drawn (excuse the pun!) towards this effect. I used the same paper to make small hand made books before, so some words were fading out underneath other words, this created a random kind of poetry or word combo! I love using materials and certain techniques to create a sense of mystery and kind of orchestrating them! Playing with opposites such as control and allowing things to happen and finding some rare little jigs between them, as apposed to “balance” which for me has the connotation of being a little dull and without much room for sidesteps and deviations.

    • That’s wonderful! I have not updated my flicker account for ages, so no new work there unfortunately. However, I have lots of new Mycelium drawing using ink and pigment on old maps to post on the blog and I should put some up on flicker too.
      All the best,
