b. 1990, Singapore
Justin Lim born 1990 in Singapore is a visual artist. His interest lies in the notion of displacement and transition between spaces and territories that separate ideas of origins.
His current practice stems partly from the perceptual and subtly evolves beyond process and creation. He seeks to investigate the intrinsic relationship a painting has to space as it evokes numerous transformative possibilities.
The play between multiple facets of the painting includes the architecture and surface of the paintings transitory state. The elusive quality of textures and forms not only act as layers and gestures but a seemingly displaced sense of tension against the skeleton of the frame itself – resulting in a liminal state.
Lim has participated in exhibitions namely in Singapore, Kyoto, Washington D.C and Wuhan. He was also a recipient of the inaugural IMPART Award and the Winston Oh Travelogue in 2017.
