Turkey tails - Framed Artwork
This very variable fungus grows mainly on dead hardwood, including stumps and standing dead trees as well as fallen branches. Turkeytail fungus grows throughout mainland Europe, from northern Scandinavia down to the Mediterranean region. This wood-rotting loving fungus is also found in Asia and is very common in North America; It is from the USA that the common name Turkeytail originates.
These artworks are part of series I created for the exhibition of a Natural History museum. I have collaborated with the professional print studio Sandeng who focuses on art for museums and galleries, in order to create artworks with really vibrant colours and depth. I first painted parts of the artwork, scanned and enhanced the colours, sent the files to Sandeng who printed them with their 12-colour printer on my favourite watercolour paper, I then collected the prints and continued to paint on top thus finishing the artworks.
The result is really vibrant artworks with beautiful depth.
