François LIM practiced pictorial hyper-realism. He expressed the reality of everyday life in a lively way, but relegated his subjectivity and his feelings to the background. He treated all subjects, scenes and events mechanically.
Following his arrival in France, he spent 11 years in the south of the hexagon, drawing inspiration from the beauty that nature exudes. And beyond that, he tried to penetrate the mystery of the colors that metamorphose endlessly on the border of light and darkness.
Today, he uses his sensitivity to unveil, capture this banal and brief moment, yet comfortable. His aesthetic ideal is to grasp in an instant the forms created furtively by the light that we pass without seeing most of the time. And finally, to express, through this cliché, the inspiration and harmony that exist between light and shadow.
