Mushroom Art for Sale by Artist C Ribet

My mushroom photography for my mushroom art prints is most often not so much mycological photography of the mushrooms themselves as it is photography of the mushroom micro-environment and the surroundings there. Each mushroom photograph uses a mushroom as either the emotional focus or the primary visual focus of the print, but the mushroom itself may be not of much use to a mycology expert. In some cases, the mushroom is a very small feature of the overall image presented in the ultimate mushroom art print, for example, in the two giclees shown at Gallery California, Mute Ovation and Impasse. In Mute Ovation the little mushroom is clearly the emotional focus of the print, but it is far from the dominating feature of the print. On the other hand, in Impasse, one might say the small band of adventuring mushrooms are the dominating feature, but they are nonetheless diminutive and tiny against the dramatic backdrop of their environment.
