Lim is renowned for his ‘hutuzi’, known as muddled writing. With the style he developed over the years, he creates a well thought out and balanced composition. The strokes executed are free, limitless yet exhibits control and sturdiness. According to Lim, timing and control is key in calligraphy, one tiny mistake will affect the entire artwork and will not reflect well on your inner character. In this piece, Lim reinterprets the poem 尋隱者不遇 or Visiting the Absent Hermit by Jia Dao - a chinese poet in the Tang Dynasty. The entire poem reads: 松下問童子 言師採藥去 只在此山中 雲深不知處 Beneath the pine-trees, I ask of a lad I see. Away is the master gathering herbs, says he, Up in this mountain, but where? I cannot tell, For there the clouds are deep and dense as be.
