Polymer photogravure print "Spore-Scpae 5" by John Pearson
Spore-Scape 6
Polymer Photogravure
20.5 x 29 in

In the fall of 2023 I found mushrooms popping up in our backyard. I arranged a number of them on piece of black card stock and left them to drop their spores for a couple days, resulting in this composition. The oversized print was produced by processing four plates that were butted together on the press bed; the white lines show where the plates came together.
