LIM KHIM KATY
Lim Khim Katy born in 1978, displays an emotional maturity beyond her year. After graduated from Ho Chi Minh City Fine Arts University in 2001, Katy received many accolades and merits from a variety of associations and became a member of the Fine Arts Association of Ho Chi Minh City in 2005. Her recognition as a contemporary Vietnamese artist was solidified with her first international solo exhibition in 2006.
Katy draws her inspiration from her life experience and her interaction with others and feels compelled to point out her observations on canvas. Her figurative work can be edgy and psychologically convincing with the subjects’ eyes shedding light on their emotional state. From figurative Katy returns to Landscape artwork. With her unique plate stroke, we enjoy another kind of beautiful scene. Her landscapes are flooded with vibrant color yet remain tranquil and serene.
Throughout her youthful career, Katy’s work has been recognized as remarkable and highly collectible, as each painting marks another step in creating a profound and authentic commentary on contemporary Vietnamese life. It is clear from simply viewing her landscapes are painted from life with an understanding and compassion that grabs the viewer and allows them to feel immediately connected to the subject. As Katy’s paintings continue to grow in scope and maturity they continue to reward the lingering viewer and collectors are ceaselessly interested in her new work.
