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.”
