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 am fascinated with the theme of isolation and how we wear masks to protect ourselves from being vulnerable with other people. I like to snapshot private moments during which my portraits aim to create an intimate moment of connection between viewer and subject. I want the viewer to step away from the canvas feeling as if they’ve shared space and an unspoken dialogue with someone, now touched, affronted, or even a simple moment of recognition.
