Testimonial: ”I see a relationship between Chin's work and [my quilt art] in the 'yin/yang' patterning, the passion for colours, the abstraction, and the unfolding relationship of patterns and colours. Though our works are very different, I find myself 'connecting the dots.' Her works allow me to find greater meaning and metaphor, and a larger unfolding connectedness with the world around me. I feel a correlation to an inner felt experience of my life and a sense of wonder every time I 'connect more dots.' Whether I'm seeing more ' foreground' or more 'background' at any given moment, I find myself re-interpreting what I see each time I really look at these lush, richly textured pieces: an unfolding process that I love. When I look at Chin's works, I experience an energetic solidity, a vibrant coloured stillness, and a rich repetitive expansion of movement. Metaphorically, I experience passionate 'close-ups' of a larger 'something'--kind of like gorgeously loaded visual sound-bites. All these experiences make it fun to put 'unrelated' pieces of Chin's works together, like creating a 'new' (differently nuanced) tune (pardon the pun)! Its amazing to me how 'things' link up, connecting the dots in so many different ways." Monica Rach, Canada.
