by Andy SmithPosted on

Justin Lim’s recent acrylic and enamel paintings convene symbols of both nature’s beauty and manmade destruction. The dominant aspect of each work, whether a mushroom cloud or floral arrangement, is only a point of entry for a work that reveals itself as critiquing multiple concepts at a time.

“His works examine the contemporary social context, touching on issues such as politics, culture and religion by using potent metaphors usually associated with urban subcultures and applying a cut and paste painting method in which eclectic images are juxtaposed to create startling interpretations,” a statement says.
