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.”

 Deborah Sherman has been inspired by the study of nature, as embodied in the figure, landscape and still life; she expresses her view of life and art through what she chooses to paint, and seeks to describe what she believes is true. Her strongest efforts have been directed toward developing a unique acrylic and oil technique combining delicate yet graphic brushwork with intensive layering of color, to delineate evanescent human experience. The artist has recently completed a sequence of images of flowers and a series of representations of young women in interiors. These works combine expressive representation with subtle modulations of color and form.

"I work to develop themes that have become increasingly important to me: the embodiment of feeling in chromatic and structural forms, the expression of highly personal meaning through accessible representation of the visible world, the immanence of a unique and universal past in the single moment.
