Mary Lim

Chicago, IL, USA
I'm obsessed with the concept of control and rhythm. In the midst of disorder, I like to create controlled chaos, where it is still lucid but in disarray. Though usually associated with minimalism, my artwork deals with careful, intentional decisions over the relative use of space as opposed to simplification.
