  • Catalogue Essay

    Hazel Lim (b. 1975, Singapore) employs text, crafting methods and drawing in her works to investigate the utility of diagrams, image making and colour theory. Past Spring, A Rolling Pasture features chromatic paper, hand-folded to form a square-pocketed pattern. Each piece of origami is slotted with and adhered to another to create a draped fabric-like tapestry, while the tinted frames that house the green tapestry create nuanced gradients and tonal accents with shadows and light.

    Lim has a background in painting and currently leads the BA (Hons) programme in the McNally School of Fine Arts, LASALLE College of the Arts. She was one of the artists commissioned for the Singapore Biennale 2013, producing A Botanical and Wildlife Survey which was exhibited at the Singapore Peranakan Museum. In 2019, she collaborated with her partner, Andreas Schlegel on the installation work, The Oort Cloud and the Blue Mountain for the Gallery Children’s Biennale 2019 at National Gallery Singapore and the Kinderbiënnale 2021 in Netherlands and Germany.
