Cinnamon by Wen Tong
Hosted by Workman Arts, Tangled Art + Disability
As part of the kind renderings exhibition in this year’s Rendezvous With Madness Festival by Workman Arts, Cinnamon by Wen Tong will be exhibited in the Tangled Art Gallery vitrines and Workman Arts Off-Site Gallery.
Cinnamon is a series of paintings which, like the spice, is mundane yet leaves an experience that invigorates the senses and has a magical quality. Ideas for the paintings came from everyday experiences in a suburban setting yet, a fantastical theme is constructed throughout the series. This reflects the artist’s own sensitivity and yearning for what is beyond daily life, where she experiences flashes of inspiration through living her life. These may be the unexpected consequences of meditative practices of a state of mind that carries over to everyday experiences. Regardless of origin, these visions are triggered by the world around her and they reshape moments into a fresh perspective. The artist’s work aims to share the knowledge gained from these experiences.
