La Macina di San Cresci



“Artists are interesting creatures. We can be obsessive, dedicated, spirited and single minded in our pursuit for that perfect realisation of our art. We tend to be outsiders and are often that square peg in the round hole, so when you find an oasis like San Cresci you hold on tight -- for it’s that sense of belonging which welcomes you.”

 I'm a painter whose work focuses on contrast between survival and living. I concentrated more on Xhosa culture where I come from. It would be nice to focus on a certain society in Italy, a clan or community of people who practice a totally different culture from mine, so I can do research and get more information about their history and heritage and find out how their living and survival stories connects and collides with mine.
