Kim Lim (1936-1997) was a Singaporean-British sculptor and printmaker


Kim studied at Saint Martin's School of Art (1954–1956) and then transferred to the Slade School of Art.


Kim’s sculptures carved from wood were inspired by basic rhythmic forms and structures.

Her prints at the same time also explore these modulations, very much influenced by Japanese aesthetics; an innate calmness and serenity.


Kim viewed paper as a sculptural material, much like stone and wood. She embraced the shaping process of lines eating into the surface in techniques such as intaglio and relief print. Ripples, infinite stalks of grass, tide lines, undulating currents.


She regarded herself as both sculptor and print maker and accorded equal significance and importance. It’s about form and surface rather than the medium.
