Detail: Delight in the lesser-known arboreal works of Lim Tze Peng, one of Singapore’s distinguished artists and Cultural Medallion recipient, in Not gallery’s exhibition, titled Tree Spirit/ 森灵: Visions of the Arboreal by Lim Tze Peng. Inspired by the sublimity of the magnificent banyan tree, visitors can now take a walk through 12 of this prestigious artist’s body of work created between 2006 and 2008 that encapsulate, as he once mused, “visual poems of chaos”.
Highly regarded for his Chinese ink paintings of old-world Singapore and abstract hutuzi calligraphy, this exhibition marks an important milestone in Lim’s artistic endeavor where he incorporates contemporary techniques with traditional Chinese painting brushwork – cropping, collaborating with chance, and tilting the picture plane.
Revel in Lim’s serendipity and his experimental spirit as he crafts a body of work that captures the wilderness and grandiosity of nature.
A Curator Tour is also available for members of the public to join. It will be held on 11 March, at 4pm. No registration required. A virtual exhibition with three additional works from the artist’s Tree Spirit series will also be available for visitors to explore online via Spatial, from 11 to 31 March 2023.
