Artist Justin Lim's fascinating black series

Justin Lim's work currently on display in the Modern Absurdity And The Superficial Abyss exhibition called I Was Looking Back To See If You Were Looking Back At Me To See Me Looking Back At You (acrylic on canvas, 2015).

At Justin Lim’s last solo exhibition in Richard Koh Fine Art, Kuala Lumpur two years ago, a pervading sense of decay hung in the air. Stylish in execution, the paintings featured skulls, dead birds and dead plants, embellished with details like blue roses and, unconventionally, slabs of raw meat.

Somehow, Lim managed to make this state of decay look winningly sexy, with splashes of colour bringing it to life.
