Oh how I love John Dilnot's work! I bought a few of his cards and little books when I was in England in July but I have admired his great talent from a distance for a long, long time.
Based in Brighton (love that place...), John explores the relationship between humans and nature, our impact on the landscape, how we alter it, control it, categorise and label it and even destroy it. His beautiful glass-fronted boxes are teeming with life, crammed full of owls, woodpeckers and moths. Amazing.
I'm always drawn to collections, but with John I am spoilt for choice. I love his screenprints,
I love his cards
and I love his little books and kits.
To be honest, I'm totally smitten.
