Enchanting mushroom book installations by Melissa Jay Craig

Melissa Jay Craig is a Chicago-based artist fascinated by mushrooms and creates incredible and surreal sculptures and installations as a tribute to them.

Fungus is an agent of change. I’m fascinated with its myriad forms, and I love to go in search of it. I can become more excited by discovering a beautiful fungal growth than by perusing artwork ‘discovered’ for us by curators in contemporary museums. When I was a child, the first time I had the intriguing feeling that the planet carried messages (texts, if you will) for those who were curious enough to look, was when I came upon a group of Amanita Muscaria, huddled together in a dark, secret space under tall pines.
