Rachel Fagiano subsumes her characters in copious fungal growths that tower over them like enormous headpieces. The artist draws with a combination of micropigment ink and graphite on paper. Her colorful, trippy-looking mushrooms stand out against the white backgrounds. Fagiano's characters seem to be in constant conflict with one another, though it's unclear for what reason. They pinch, hit, and choke each other in a blind rage — perhaps hinting at the senselessness of violence. Her work evokes that of Chinese artist Zhou Fan, whom we covered on the blog previously here.
