Art Reception featuring Pauline Lim at the ROOTED Armory Cafe!

Date(s) - Sat. Aug. 28, 2021
3:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Join artist Pauline Lim for an Art Reception at the ROOTED Cafe on August 28th from 3 PM to 5 PM!

About herself and her art, she says “I am a fear-driven person. I am always freaking out about the fact that we all have to die, so a lot of my paintings have to do with the frustration of being trapped in a mortal existence. The increasing aches and pains of aging underscore this dilemma to me every day, and make me seek out color and beauty, as well as the relief of laughter alongside the recognition of despair.

“In my work I started off exploring the themes of dreams and illness. Then I was drawn to Medieval and Renaissance images of saints. I also like playing with scale– giant cat heads on human bodies, or tiny humans intermingled with items on a tabletop landscape. Basically, I just create paintings that I would want to see—that recognize the truth and folly of our existence, that are visually stimulating, perhaps gorgeous, frequently funny.”
