About the Artist

As an abstract expressionist painter Novi Lim found her most true and liberated self in exploring the beauty of ambiguity. She likes to capture the essence and subtle elements of the natural world, water, air, particles, energy, and space — giving the viewers the freedom of interpretation or creating their own narrative if they choose to do so. She studied visual communication design and was a graphic designer before deciding to be a fine artist full time, fulfilling her childhood dream. She uses art as a therapeutic way to drift into an imaginary land where she could set expressions free and let go of her subconscious through tactile movements and the fascinating play of color and texture. Her painting process involves trusting her intuitive flow of motion, often fast, and the layering process that is delicate and careful. Her choice of medium to work with is acrylic on canvas.
