Beci Orpin: MUSH/ROOM
Sep 2023 - Mar 2024 
Shepparton Art Musuem
A Fieldguide to Exploration

In MUSH / ROOM, visual artist Beci Orpin looks at the process of playing with ideas, using mushrooms and fungi to illustrate the way ideas can unexpectedly pop up from our imagination, like mushrooms spawning suddenly from the ground. Kids and the young at heart will be delighted by Orpin's colourful creations, which she crafts from an array of media to form her fantastical fungi, from towering Puffballs to the tiniest Milkcaps, presenting a MUSH of different mediums in a ROOM full of mushrooms.
