Justin Lim graduated with a Diploma in Fine Arts and is currently pursuing his BA (Hons) at LASALLE College of the Arts, in partnership with Goldsmiths University of London.
Creating images of mortality, the passage of time and the longing to hold on to things that are ephemeral and transitory in nature, Justin devises his drawings through photography. “I treat each work as a theatre set, orchestrating different lightings, composition, rehearsing the objects and ambience. I then try to capture the ideal, which is momentary and translate it into my own language of drawing. Quiet and devoid of imperfection, my works create a new and different experience for the viewer. Going beyond photographic realism, I intentionally heighten awareness of the subject, bringing focus and attention to the objects I have selected for the viewer to note. The intention to produce a deepened sense of mortality forces the viewer to realise beauty that is most fragile.”
Each series is perfectly arranged and celebrates the quiet moments of mortality. Beautiful.
