Hinn’s latest work focuses on intense states of mind and on their role in being human. By dismantling extreme experience, both positive and negative, into their constituent elements, the ”Analytical Poem” seeks the common base structures that characterize all the exhilarating experiences that Hinn has captured into the dazzling color gamut of her abstract painting. Key themes in her latest projects have evolved from fascination with the phenomenon of synaesthesia, the idea of blended senses. Hinn is interested in investigating how it is possible to visualise experiences on canvases. By deconstructing the painting medium to its primary parts; a brush stroke, colour mottle, line, spike, etc., she presents to the viewers the distinct perspective of inward human experiences. Hinn frequently uses brush strokes and shapes with torn edges as a central motif in the visual language of her dynamic abstract paintings.
