John Dilnot: Night Flight 1,000 piece jigsaw puzzle
John Dilnot (English, b. 1956), created his Night Flight screen print over the course of six weeks, starting with a solid-black printed ground and adding layers of opaque colour.
The buildup of intense colours gives the work a strong physicality, he says. Imagery for the moths originated in found line drawings of specific species, although the resulting multicolour swarm in the night sky is perhaps an unnatural phenomenon.
Dilnot also creates books, boxes, paintings, and other works, many of which examine humans’ relationship with nature. He has studied graphic design, fine art, and printmaking, and his artworks and bookworks can be found in galleries, museums, and private collections.
