NIGHT FLIGHT


2013

This is a multi colour screen print. Instead of recording the number of printings and colours used, I worked on this print over a six week period in a free way starting with a solid black printed ground and slowly built up layer upon layer of opaque colour. I print with artists' high pigmented acrylic paint which allows good control and intensity of colour. The build up of opaque layers gives the print a strong physical quality.
The print is similar to the Moth Collection boxes, except this time we have a swarm taking to the air at night. The species are mixed, it could be a natural phenomenon or an unnatural phenomenon.
The moths imagery in the boxes and prints did originate from found line drawings of particular species. I find the names just as fascinating, such as Ghost, Magpie, Death's Head Hawk, Goat, Kentish Glory, Garden Tiger and Emperor.

An edition of 15, titled signed and dated in pencil along the bottom margin.
