Encounter: Stephen Sinn

In this exhibition there is one work, ‘encounter: Stephen Sinn’, made for the 2011 Archibald Prize. The word ‘encounter’ surfaced during discussion after Father Steve spent some very long moments silently looking at the work for the first time. For him, the term tended to encapsulate not only the movement happening in the work, but its parallel with what was most meaningful for him in his work with others, especially the homeless – the encounter. It is, as he describes it, the heroic dignity of street people that takes his breath away every day and gives him breath: where it is this encounter that forms him, that makes him Stephen Sinn.
