"Using just three materials—paper, ink and a calligraphy pen—Lilian is able to develop the full potential of each, and to mine the depth of her mark-making through them. Without the noise of superfluity, her drawings shine with an intrinsic authenticity, and it is precisely because of their reduced simplicity that every element of her work is so fully present" - Veronica Scarpati, Setting Boundaries to Create Freedom, Artoronto"
