Award Winning Artist
Hello everyone ! Thank you for stopping by my profile. I HSIN LIN ,an artist obsessed with the beauty and the form of flowers. I believe art is relatable, reachable and enjoyable. Welcome to the colourful world of my floral series. Most of my inspiration comes from my observation of the natural world.
I am very lucky. A short walk from the studio takes me into a beautiful forest and it’s there that I can touch the texture of the tree bark, observe the colours of the current season and feel the sunlight reflecting on the trees and grasses. I often find myself collecting leaves, feathers and other wonderful gifts from nature that have fallen to the ground. I love to observe these in great detail and reflect their beauty into my paintings.
I find acrylic is the perfect medium to interpret my intense passion for the subjects I depict, loving the vivid and opaque property of paint on canvas.
In my ongoing contemporary floral series, I use close observation to try to capture as much detail as possible. Through my paintings I see flowers as representing life, when I am carefully building up the tiny flower petals and leaf vines, it feels like trying to figure out the uncertainty in life. It is also a reminder that like the flowers in full bloom, this is our time to be alive. As life presents its self you can fight with all your will or you may dance with the flow, either way, a human life is unique, one of a kind and this journey belongs to you only.
HSIN completed both a Bachelor degree in finance at NCHU and a diploma in fashion at RMIT.
Prior to taking up painting, she launched her own personal fashion label as a chief designer and was active in numerous international exhibitions and TV shows in Taiwan.
She was determined to extend her expertise in visual art after her returning to the beloved city - Melbourne. Hsin Lin swapped the manipulation of fabric for the more enticing world of paint and canvas and has been creating art full-time ever since.
In both her on-going abstract and realistic series, Hsin Lin has devoted herself to bringing the beauty and serenity that she feels when depicting floral subjects to those who view and collect her work.
Her artwork - Ready and Waiting - Dahlia has been judged as the winner of National Mental Health Month Art Competition and is used to produce the official posters for National Mental Health Month 2019. To Be with You - Yellow Gum Blossoms was chosen and printed on 50,000 Eco-friendly coffee cups distributed nationally in Australia on 2018; and another Artwork - Trust Me - Cadbury the Cat - was chosen and published on 10,000 postcards distributed nationally on 2017. Her full collection -The Voice of Nature- was also featured on Australia Artist’s Palette magazine on 2017.
Her Artworks are held in numerous private collections across Australia and internationally. Recent exhibitions include various local art shows and group exhibitions in Victorian Artists Society, The Hut Gallery and so on.
