Lim Puoch

Lim Puoch is an oil painter whose work focuses on capturing the essence of everyday objects, particularly those often overlooked yet essential for human function. Their current body of work delves into the intimate spaces of bathrooms and the items found within them. Fascinated by the profound significance of bathrooms in our daily lives, Lim views these spaces as sanctuaries where individuals can cleanse, incubate, and reset themselves.

In their paintings, each item within the bathroom serves as a symbol of utility, whether it be a tool for cleansing or cleaning. Lim is intrigued by the universal experience of respect and privacy that bathrooms afford, transcending geographical and cultural boundaries. They perceive this daily ritual of personal hygiene as a quiet luxury—a moment of solitude and reflection amidst the bustle of everyday life.
