Item Description

IconCaretDown

In this series, images are distorted and wrapped over a clear acrylic panel. The acrylic panel serves as a base and boundary for the images, alluding to the digital screen. The images on the front of the panel retain their original forms, presumably their accurate representation, but the back of the panel shows these very same images broken down and abstracted.
These artworks are meant to play with dimensionality, between spatiality and flatness. The ‘back’ of the panel implies depth beyond the frontal surface, the abstracted forms display lighting and shadowing, but are still relegated to flatness. Notions of foreground and background are also explored, with the clarity of the acrylic screen laying bare both sides.

In Dense Blind, imagery of stars and galaxies are twisted and abstracted, with the subtitle at the front alluding to activities of the night, and the word ‘empty’ setting up the artwork’s
mellow atmosphere, and suggests open space for contemplation and reflection, very much like solitary outings and idling in nightclubs and bars. The title contradicts these signifiers, derived directly from its formal appearance, looking like a curtain or cloth; these meanings become intermixed and mashed up, leaving a gray area in reading the work.

Artist Profile

Hometown: Singapore

Lives and Works: Singapore

Tristan Lim is a multidisciplinary Singaporean artist whose interest lies in uncovering
semiotic relationships between disparate things, questioning ideas of significance and
representation by generating distortions within cultural forms and their appearances.
Interactions between digital, physical and pictorial spaces are explored in the conception
of his artworks. Informed by the language of visual culture, he seeks to surface the peculiar through drawing, painting and video.
