The blooming hydrangeas in this painting is a quasi-fictional work. I performed Chinese calligraphy on rice paper while listening to the background music - Debussy, Estampes (1903) - 1. Pagodes. Each marks of the flat brush pulsated with the tunes of the music. As the music kept repeating; the flat brush kept repeating too; until the paper has no empty space. Though, Debussy's record still performed endlessly...

Fuen Chin is an artist who grew up in Kedah state, Malaysia. Her art takes inspiration from horticulture which is a nostalgic reflection of her childhood. Both her late grandparents were Chinese from Southern China with backgrounds in Chinese herbs and medicine, running a small herbal shop. It was there where Fuen learnt the importance of Chinese herbs and the stories around them.
It is these stories and her visions about plants that provides an endless inspiration for the calligraphic floral paintings. Starting out as a self-taught artist, Chin eventually studied a Fine Art research degree at the Royal College of Art.
She has worked on an art installations, citing the following response from the panel of judges: ‘We very much enjoyed your proposal and presentation and thought there were a lot of interesting possibilities that may emerge from your works.’ She continues to work and develop her calligraphic paintings using Chinese ink within a more contemporary context.
