Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

This figurative, flowers painting was shortlisted to Octopus Energy Art Prize 2019/20 ‘Portraits from the Precipice’.

In this figurative, flowers painting, the artist thought of home gardens, community gardens and botanic gardens in the future. Climate changes, such as prolonged raining season, extreme hot weather and great temperature differences causes flood, forest fires, sickness and animals lost habitats. How are man-made, artificial gardens to survive in such circumstances? Where will be the parks and gardens for children and senior citizens?

The artist learned the concept of ‘morph’ from Muller’s morphs terms and she was particularly attracted to one of it: Hypermorph, which it means a mutation that causes an increase in normal gene function. Instead of presenting the scientifically proven images, she choose to present a series of surreal, metaphorical hypermorphed garden.

This painting is signed on the front or back and includes my Certificate of Authenticity.

Artist Profile

Born: 1979

Hometown: Sungai Petani, Kedah.

Based in: Sungai Petani, Kedah

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.
