The poet John Keats wrote to his two brothers in 1817 defining his term ‘negative capability’ and described it as a space where “a man is capable of being in uncertainties, mysteries, doubts without irritable reaching after fact and reason.”
Todd Lim started these paintings during the COVID-19 lockdown and throughout that year, worked intuitively without a preconceived idea or notion of what the paintings would become. Working with whatever materials and supplies were at hand on the property and in the studio became the limitation; the bounds exceeded only through possible acts of creativity and experimentation, trial and error, meditation, and acceptance.
