Corey Corcoran’s Etchings On Mushrooms

Artist Corey Corcoran forgoes paper or canvas for a less traditional medium.  He carefully etches his work into mushrooms, artist conk mushroom to be exact.  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.  The mushrooms are populated with carefully depicted plant life, insects, animals, and even people.
