Title: The Wild Mushroom Hunt
Artist: Chris Kirby
About: It's autumn, and I'm scrambling amongst the leaf litter searching for wild mushroom. "I have a knife, a basket and a small magnifying glass to check on spoors and details of each specimen". Painted in the style of noted American artist Milton Resnick (1917-2004) using pallet knife the artwork brings out the myriad of colours of the leaf-mold and rotting under-canopy vegetation of the forest floor.
Acrylic painted on cotton stretched canvas on sturdy frame.
Dimensions: 24 x 18 inches (60cm x 45cm x 2cm) Signed, dated on verso.
