Boston-based illustrator forgoes the traditional paper or canvas for the underside of a giant mushroom. His organic backdrops allow for a sculptural quality to his work, each pierced piece taking advantage of the structure of the fungus. Appearing as a cross between folk art and classic book illustration, each composition seems to be telling a story where humans and the environment intersect. By choosing a the Artist Conk, Corcoran not only highlights his own skill, but the often overlooked beauty of a fascinating organism.
