Lim Tze Peng
Market Scene, 1973

Ink on Paper
69 x 69cm


This is a trip down memory lane for Lim Tze Peng as fondly recollects the old days. Lim mentioned after retiring in 1981, he dedicated all his free time to painting the old Singapore scenes before all of it got demolished. This piece is one of Lim’s earlier works when he was still experimenting and finding his own style as an artist, he incorporating both Chinese and Western painting techniques – fusing the use of the Chinese calligraphy brush to paint landscapes from the Western method of direct observation. Lim captures the gradual disappearance of the old Singapore scenes by implementing negative space as a border to create a faded effect.
