Potpourri in dictionary is “a mixture of flowers, herbs, and spices that is usually used for scent, or a miscellaneous collection, or medley.” Potpourri for Sin Sin Man is complex; a mixture of colours, fragrances, textures, and tastes. Beautiful things grow in unsuspected fields. It is a theme that echoes alternative ways we each view, create and combine our positions and art within our community and society to create a visual narrative of shared experience.

Sin Sin Man explores the pockets of abundance of her “secret garden”, interpreting her ideas through the materiality of paint, brush, hand and the use of different senses. Past and future are important, as is preserving the moment. Sin likes to juxtapose old with new, people with objects, and nature to marry different eras and ambiguities into her wabi-sabi ‘dreamscapes’.Sin’s works engage with the past to re-establish her place in the present.

The year long “Sin Sin Living Celebration” opens with “Potpourri”, a sensory-immersive art exhibition featuring the latest works by Sin Sin Man. The artist’s tactile sensibility transforms crunched paper, ink, wood, textile and scent into works that dare viewers to reach deep into their sensorial memories and to conjure their very own meaning and understanding.

照見。創作之於冼倩文乃一面鏡子, 照見自己對世間的一切複雜感知:一層層的顏色丶氣味丶質地丶肌理以及味道,相蕩相薄,閃閃爍爍地映現在她的作品中。許多的美好都在意料之外生長著。 照見是回應眾生看見的各種善丶惡丶美丶醜,藉此在我們身處的羣體中融合自身對生活的體驗和感悟,透過視覺的敘體去分享內在的體驗。冼倩文不斷探索藴藏於自身中豐富的靈感泉源,運用多種媒介素材的視覺表現和不同的感知,創造出自由解讀的語境。過去與未來珍貴地醖釀著每個當下,藝術家喜歡把新與舊丶人與物對照,把來自不同時空和歧義的本質融入到自己的侘寂夢境之中。冼倩文的創作與過去相結合,以重新確立自身當下的位置。

「Sin Sin 生命禮讚二十年」的整年藝術項目率先由「照見」展開序幕, 是次展覽將展出冼倩文最新的創作,藝術家敏鋭感知的觸角把紙張丶水墨丶木材丶紡織和氣味轉化成為可以讓觀眾與作品本體互為關照的語義場,帶領觀者潛入感官記憶中,建構個人的理解和意義。
