Kim Lim (1936-1997) worked in wood, steel, aluminium, bronze, fibreglass, plastic and paper, but is perhaps best known for her later meditative stone carvings evoking natural forms and rhythms.
Although Lim’s work displays an affinity with minimalism, her concerns are always more with the pulse and vibrancy of organic growth and the movement and reflection of light on water. This exhibition bought together 28 works in marble, granite, slate and Portland Stone from 1980s and 90s, including two pieces Lim worked on specifically for this exhibition. The building’s naturally-lit galleries emphasised the play of light and shadow created by the deeply incised sufaces of the works. A selection of prints showed the connections between Lim’s works on paper and the stone works.
