QimmyShimmy - Still Life

QimmyShimmy art

After a brief hiatus, QimmyShimmy goes back to basics to explore a subject matter that has started many an artistic journey - still life fruits!

Join our collectors preview list for early access to the online catalogue.

Opening reception: Saturday July 20th, 6 - 9pm. Drinks will be provided by our friends at Better Beer.

This exhibition will run from July 21st - August 11th and will coincide with Olga Esther's 'Gaia: Seeds of Peace', Kristen Egan's 'Dark Salt Water', Gustavo Rimada's 'Folklórico' and Julia A. Rich's 'Soft Place'.

Just as fruits come from the wombs of plants, they also give and nourish life through flesh and seeds. So why can't fruits also contain traces of *human life*, in all its messy glory? 'Still Life' aims to celebrate the life-giving nature of fruits in strange, uncanny ways.

Lim Qi Xuan is a sculptor better known by the moniker QimmyShimmy. A designer by day and artist by night, she fuels her two passions with caffeine and big dreams. Her “creepy-cute” miniature sculptures fuse the two worlds of the real and the imagined, treading the fine lines between horror and beauty. Her aesthetic sensibilities are shaped by her love for fantasy stories, old curiosities, time travel and a yearning for make-believe.

QimmyShimmy's works have been showcased in cities around the world, such as New York, L.A., London, Rome and Tokyo. She is currently based in Singapore.
