I Meet Her At a Place We Always Go To (a drawing journal) 2020 - 2021
Pen and colour pencil on paper
21 x 29.7 cm each
Geraldine Lim’s series of 79 drawings in colour pencil and pen treat the practice of drawing as journalling, dealing with the artist’s feelings of isolation and anxiety, and serving as an expression of her compulsion to fantasise an alternative world where the self is placed in various imagined scenarios, from strange intimacies to suffering. The figures in her work are amorphous, with shifting colours, limbs, protrusions, organs and wounds, a reflection on what it means to own a body, and the identifications of gender and sexuality.
