In another popular mushroom art print called “Mushroom,” artist Erin Clark takes a more scholarly approach to her work, so to speak. The piece illustrates a detailed picture of a black-and-white mushroom, allowing viewers to see its numerous textures up close. What makes this print stand out, however, is its interesting and clever backdrop. Clark has printed the mushroom on a page torn from the dictionary—the page that happens to contain the entry for the word “mushroom.”
Other artists like Johann Wilhelm Weinmann and Hansjorg Furrer prefer to work with collages of the famous fungi. In Weinmann’s “Mushrooms I” and “Mushrooms II,” the artist documents various types of mushrooms in a chart of sorts, listing the corresponding scientific names at the bottom of the piece. Like Weinmann, Furrer uses a neutral color scheme in his works “Antique Mushrooms I” and “Antique Mushrooms II.” The colors give them a soft, vintage feel.
