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.”

Tancha Dirickson is the artistic name of Andrea Dirickson Garrett. She is a native Brazilian and Canadian multimedia artist living and working in the agricultural valley of the Okanagan and Salt Spring Island in British Columbia, Canada.

In her recent artistic research and practice she creates relational aesthetics based work. This body of work is often based in collaborative projects using irony and humor to convey subjective artistic comments about the politics of a locale or a situation ( micropolitics).
In her formalist object-based practice, she does printmaking and abstract painting, examining color surface, open spaces and peripheral islands. Tancha Dirickson has an Interdisciplinary MFA in Visual Arts from the University of British Columbia.
