Mushroom Etchings


Boston based artist Corey Corcoran forgoes paper or canvas for a less traditional medium, instead drawing inspiration from nature and organic forms. The artist works with the natural textures on the surface of the conk mushroom to create beautiful images populated with carefully depicted plant life, insects and animals.


Corcoran’s etchings are intricately detailed and lightly engraved into the underside of the mushroom.  His work seems to be caught in the middle of an engrossing narrative, a story unfolding.  Also, Corcoran doesn’t forget the natural character of his medium when determining the content of each piece.
