Floral paintings are just one genre in Siew Kiat's oeuvre, but they are the most overt testimony of her love for nature. These free and uninhibited renditions of the hibiscus plant bear, more often than not, accidental droplets from a laden brush, revealing the artist's confidence and spontaneity in the handling of the watercolour medium as well as her sensitivity in conveying the delicacy and poetry inherent in her subject.
