Evening Climb: The Later Style Of Lim Tze Peng

National University of Singapore Museum
21 Lower Kent Ridge Road, Singapore
Nov 25, 2016 To Jul 29, 2017


Detail: At 96 years old, Lim Tze Peng’s career has seen him practising and experimenting with Chinese ink and brush. From his practice of calligraphy and using a fine brush technique to sketch open air drawings of landscapes and scenery, the artist in his later and more recent experiments arrived at the monumental, abstracted calligraphy and paintings he has come to be known for.

The exhibition focuses on recent developments and works in the artist’s practice. Drawing from a recent donation of Lim Tze Peng’s works to NUS Museum, generously supported by loans from the Lim Tze Peng Art Gallery at Chung Cheng High School, and other private collections, the exhibition focuses on the artist’s progression from landscape paintings in his earlier years, to this turn towards the abstract and the monumental in his application of calligraphic lines undertaken in the later part of his artistic journey.
