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.”

My recent paintings have been inspired by the unknown and the unknowable. Many of these works explore nature as a guide and source of personal healing. Some of my paintings take inspiration from both rituals and votives as manifestations of desire and prayer. For me, painting is a way to find a personal center in a place where the present, past, and future co-mingle. Painting is a mechanism for processing and meditating on systems, while responding to immediate and far-flung surroundings. It is also a way to imagine, construct, and recollect. History, human experience, interpersonal relationships, and place are ongoing themes in my work.
