Holly Clayton

Contemporary Art and Illustration BA(Hons)

I am a free flowing and growing artist, with the starting point of my work consisting of prints of mushrooms and growths. I carry this out through spore printing, painted impressions and home-grown mold structures onto the supporting media itself. The ever growing collection of grown and foraged mycelium creates its own environment and presence in the room; bringing the outside world within. Rather than to imply imitation of the mushroom, I create an experimental multi-leveled space of appreciation and encouragement for the natural growths.
