Mark Francis – mushrooms



Another artist fascinated by mushrooms is Mark Francis. In a book about the work of this artist (Mark Francis – by Richard Dyer, James Peto and Francis McKee, published by Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane and Lund Humphries, 2008), which was send to me recently by a friend, I found an image of another mushroom spore print and a photograph of a model of Amanita muscaria, the Fly agaric.

Mark Francis talking about mushrooms in an interview in this book:

.... JP: Yes, but you are also intrigued by those kinds of huge numbers at the microscopic end of the scale, aren't you?

MF
: Yes, I was thinking about that when I made a spore print recently. I placed an actual mushroom on top of a piece of paper and covered it with a container. I waited for the spores to fall overnight onto the paper. This process left an identical footprint of the spore dispersal from the gills. It's like a mirror image of the underside of a mushroom. A field mushroom, say three inches across, has roughly 400 gills and about 16 thousand million spores; These fall out at a rate of 40 million an hour. I find these figures mind-boggling.
....

fascinated by mushrooms Chris Drury wrote about a recent project (Destroying Angel) on his weblog, July 25, 2008:
The mushroom Amanita virosa - Destroying Angel - is pure white and utterly deadly if you are foolish enough to eat it. Symptoms of poisoning may take 24 hours to appear by which time it is too late to do anything. Severe vomiting, diarrhoea and abdominal pains may last a day or more and are then followed by a period of recovery. The patient may think his ordeal is over and may be released from hospital only to die in agony within a few days from liver and kidney failure.
The name Destroying Angel has a strange pull and I have long wanted to make a work with this mushroom. With the events of September 11th and the ensuing wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, it seemed like now was the right time. The mushroom is symbolically paradoxical: mushrooms are agents of decay, but by breaking down organic matter into soil they create the foundation of life on our planet. I like this duality; the image of a destroying angel brings to mind the fearsome sword-wielding Shinto deity, Fudo Myoo, who by cutting through the ego, liberates rather than destroys.
