Love this series of paintings by Melinda Josie depicting animals covered in fungi; (cordyceps to be exact).

Cordyceps – “The spores enter the system of a creature, take over it’s nervous system and drive it upwards to high ground. When the parasite finally takes over, killing the host, the spores are released into the air, (by way of breaking out of the body), and begin to search for the next victim.” – Cool, I think!

This forms part of a group show entitled “Dazzle” at Narwal Art projects (Toronto), running from Sept 9th – Oct 17th, 2010
