The muted outlines of human featuresAlisa Lim A Po ARTZU Gallery Manchester transfixed in thought or solitary reflection, colours layered against aluminium or copper, each element creating an impression of the human condition.  ‘Clones’ speaks of the human need for a unique sense of self; that splendid isolation which creates the individual, constrained or locked against societal norms.

This struggle though, is what lights up these works, and creates something dynamic and extraordinary.  The bold and beautiful colours, illuminated against the smooth metallic surface, allow a patina to form where paint can be layered and scraped away.  Without this conflict of one element against another, the human struggle with life, there would be none of this complexity, and the iridescence and multi-faceted intensity of these astonishing artworks would be lost.

Clones, insitu

In her series, Battle Fields, Alisa Lim A Po truly grasps this endless conflict. Our desire for love and connection, pitted against the colder aspects of isolation, can leave us feeling adrift and alone.  In this space, there is, again, something fortuitous and remarkable captured in her paintings: even in our most abandoned state, we are always part of life’s ceaseless ebb and flow.

Our ego separates us temporarily from this awareness, but these paintings can stretch beyond that segregation.  They take us towards a place where colour, luminosity and form come together as one, allowing connection at its deepest, most timeless level.
