Jayson Lilley works at the forefront of printmaking practices incorporating painting and collage techniques into his process making each print different from the next. With a passion for urban landscapes, his work is known for its architectural focus, zooming in on familiar landmarks and reproducing iconic structures from the metropolis. These dynamic scenes sit against backdrops of expansive skies, created using large areas of gold, copper or silver leaf.
“My infatuation comes by the shape that my chosen building or vista makes as it cuts its way into the sky - the negative space draws me in as much as the building itself.”
BANK NOTE COLLECTION
A brand new collection of limited edition work, which sees Lilley embrace the unexpected as he allows the materials to take centre stage. Here he departs from the reliable flat support of the paper to introduce texture to the surface, exploring loose applications and unplanned marks. In turn, he disrupts the clean, flat qualities of traditional screen printing and introduces raw lines, rough edges and a sense of life and movement; an unpredicatability that reflects the personality of the city. Featuring three dynamic new London scenes available in 50x50cm and a larger 70x70cm.
Screen print with metallic foil spray paint hand finished with acrylic paint and ink.
