About the artist
Lim’s work delves into the seemingly ordinary spaces of our urban environment, particularly those intimately linked with the Singaporean “lifestyle”. Ranging from public housing estates to the interiors of homes and the depiction of nature within our urban environment, Lim finds fascination in the poetics of these spaces.

Drawing from her printmaking background, Lim takes a contemporary approach by employing printmaking and painting techniques. She carves wood to craft matrices, treating them as canvases in their own right. This transformative process blurs the lines between traditional printmaking and painting, challenging conventional artistic boundaries.

Through her artwork, Lim seeks to provoke introspection and inspire viewers to contemplate the intricate tapestry of life woven within the urban environment. Her pieces serve as a medium for reflecting upon the subtle yet profound connections that define our existence within these spaces.
