Kenjilim
  • Kenji Lim
  • “I am primarily interested in creating atmosphere and an environment in my work. It is the air and the silence of the forest. I work in monochrome because it transports me to that space, almost like a dream. It is the deadened sound under the canopy, and the stillness of the air, as the pillars of the trees rise high above you.”
  • Artist Story
  • Kenji Lim is a British artist living and working in Herefordshire, England. He studied at Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art, University of Oxford, 1999-2002.

    Lim's work is influenced by natural landscapes, in particular, the mountains and forests of North America. He uses the memory of these spaces to evoke their character rather than their location.

    The “At Home With Strangers” series is created with a wide variety of mediums. Mixing painting and drawing, layers of light and texture are built across the surface of each piece. Washes and transparent materials on the surface means that the viewer can see the working that happened beneath, giving each piece a history. Its bones are laid bare and you can see traces of its creation.
