Lim Tze Peng
Street Market Wholesalers, 1982

Ink on Rice Paper
66 x 66cm


This black and white work by Lim Tze Peng depicts a bustling marketplace, full of vendors displaying their goods, and curious patrons who browse the stalls. Lim uses bold lines which articulate the defined forms of the umbrellas, people and the buildings in the background of the composition, while the rich tonal harmonies define the negative spaces through the blend of black and white shades over white. Light and dark modulate the contours of the artwork, creating a vibrant and energetic spirit that makes the scene come alive. Through the absence of colour, focus is instead placed on the stark beauty of Lim’s brushstrokes, rendering this scene of everyday life with dignity and a sense of nostalgia.
