Artist Statement on 'Embody (Series)':
"The crucifixion of Christ, arguably the single-most iconic image of Christianity, is often overlooked for its grotesquerie. Yet it is also its violence that lends the image its significance – signaling sacrifice and salvation.
In this work, motifs of gothic architecture and anatomy are reproduced in red and green – the colours often associated with Christmas. They are arranged symmetrically and appear decorative, reminiscent of wreaths displayed during the season. At the same time, the visceral nature of the ornamentation also serves as a vivid homage of the Christian story of sacrifice."

The works of May Lim reflect a life-long obsession with beauty, the disturbing and the celebration of loss. Her practice often involves the examination of the ever-fluid boundaries between repulsion and attraction.
“With a significant background in art, I hope to bring an alternative vision to that of my contemporaries in graphic design. My sources of influence span the mediums of film, art and writing which I seek to imbue in my work. While I am constantly finding ways to marry the realms of art and graphic design in my own terms, I never fully consider myself an artist or a graphic designer.”
