Interview: Sarah Lim–Murray
Luca Curci talks with Sarah Lim-Murray during ANIMA MUNDI FESTIVAL 2019 – CONSCIOUSNESS at Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi.

Sarah Lim-Murray had a multi-disciplinary training when she was in Art college, from drawing, design, embroidery, painting, sculpturing to stain glass. Originally from Singapore, she obtained a diploma in Art and Design before moving to London where she graduated with a BA(Hons) in Central St Martins. Painting has always been her passion but her career has taken the path of an Art Director in advertising. She is working on steering it back into making the art she loves. Her current favourite medium is oil, using the classic style oil painting techniques to create contemporary pieces.

Luca Curci – What is art for you?
Sarah Lim-Murray – Art to me is freedom. An escape from the mundane grind of modern life. It’s a portal to a different better world. It also allows me to express the different facets of myself, like being a magician, able to create what I imagine.

LC – What’s your background? What is the experience that has influenced your work the most?
SLM – I was in art college for 5 years in Singapore and London, training in fine arts, sculpture, design and creative thinking. There were too many people and experiences that influenced my work but fundamentally it is led by the ‘a feeling’ I have. When people see my paintings I hope they will share a bit of what I felt.

SLM – I am constantly evolving, what remains constant is the need to connect to how I feel when I paint.
