Experimental printmaker Freedom Wilson & designer and maker Georgina Donovan are experienced artists that call Katoomba home have transformed Penny Lane with their work ‘Mushroom Matrix,’ as part of the Living Lanes project.

‘Mushroom Matrix’ features images of native mushroom species printed onto a large scale plywood surface with other print images including mushroom habitats, morphology, plant parts and wildflowers. Layered drawings feature the leaf litter and dried flowers of Sassafras trees, Coachwoods, Banksia and gully ferns as a tribute to the complex relationships between different species of plant and fungi.

Mushroom forms have been cut from sustainable plantation plywood and also fixed to the brick walls of the laneways to represent the unique fungi species growing within the escarpment and gullies of the ancient Katoomba rainforest below.
