Lim Tze Peng
Street Food Under the Trees

Ink and Pigment on Paper
68 x 93cm


This black and white work by Lim Tze Peng captures a scene of street food stalls situated under magnificent trees, and filled with stallholders and various patrons enjoying their meals. Lim uses bold lines which articulate the defined forms of the stalls, figures and the trees 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. The artist uses washes of colour to depict the figures, imbuing this moment captured with life and energy. Lim utilisies negative space in the composition as a border, generating feelings of nostalgia and wistfulness, and reminding the viewer that this was a fleeting moment in history.
