Mycelium Map Series “ Red Lungs” Marianne Slevin 2010

 

These two map pieces above sat for several months awaiting completion today with the help of Svenja’s red ink she left me, I finished them both. On Friday I left one that I had finished several months ago into the framers in Galway, I cant wait to see what it is like when it is framed. My plan for the winter is to apply for a solo exhibition and work towards that. The piece above is on a map James and i found in a market in London. The word Aroha repeated over and over means love in Maori, a New Zealand woman sent a little heart with the word Aroha on it after visiting our Galley, such a lovely couple they were. The pink sandals belong to our daughter, they caught my eye and I really wanted to draw them. Apparently mycelium reaches up after we have walked over the ground to clear up any debris we may leave behind us!
