Flowers Good Moon Round
William Lim wears many hats – architect, renowned collector, major donor of the M+ Museum, and multi-faceted artist. Lim sees painting as a way to record his life experience. The theme of the latest exhibition is ‘Flowers Good Moon Round’ – a Chinese idiom symbolising the beauty and fullness of life. The colourful presentation of 20 recent works by Lim and 10 works from the 1970s are on view for the first time, tracing the artist’s artistic development over half a century and the cultural influences of his traditional Chinese roots.
