This latest body of work by the urban landscape artist is an exciting development from this pursuit of perfection which sees him embrace the unexpected and unplanned as he allows the materials to take the centre stage of these dynamic cityscapes.

Here Lilley 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 screenprinting and introduces raw lines, rough edges and a sense of life and movement to the scenes; an unpredictability that reflects the personality of the city.

These uncontrolled variations ensure each artwork is completely unique, yet they remain constrained within the frame of a perfect, crisp circle. The loose marks sit in contrast to this round lens, which seems to hold them at the precipice between freedom and constraint; a reflection of a conflicted existence that has been compounded by the COVID-19 pandemic and associated anxieties centred on our vibrant cities.
