Description: “Still life is one of my favorite subjects, and I am always fascinated by the inter-relationship of various shapes and colours. They are simply beauties of silence.” — Chin Kon Yit Chin Kon Yit had produced a series of oil paintings based on still life. Graceful forms of the plant complement the sinuous drapery folds in the background. It is a bold palette, using a high contrast of complementary colours inclusive of green and red.
