Digest forms part of 'The Illusion of Separation' triptych, a series of pieces celebrating the interconnectedness of all things. Digest is a no holds barred ode to my love of gathering wild food. I am unable to express the otherworldly feeling that looking for and harvesting these treasures, particularly mushrooms, has given me since I was a child.

This piece features a variety of edible wild plants and mushrooms that I gather locally throughout the year (you can find a list of the species included in this piece below). I have a secret spot I love so very much, and this piece transports me there. Cooking dinner under the stars by the river after a day in the forest gathering ingredients. It feels like the earth, the universe, like they’re hugging you... I'll stop there, but I hope you feel some of that cosy, embracing, wild love from this piece! :)
