"I work across painting, objects and installation addressing personal cross-cultural references to investigate how nature and culture collide or cross paths.

Two particular species of flower, Rafflesia and Pohutakawa, are memorialised in found marble to act as symbols of my two cultural backgrounds; one of my Chinese Malaysian heritage and the other of my birthplace, New Zealand. With an interest in paleobotany, the works attempt to create a contemporary representation of fossilised plants."

 - Clarissa Lim, Royal College of Art
