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 works are created using various forms of printmaking (hand-painted monoprints in water-based paints on archival paper), painting and collage. I think my most successful pieces combine simplicity and the Japanese concept of "wabi sabi" (finding beauty in imperfection).
Each new piece begins with either a sketch or an idea about colors. And it always comes from a direct experience with the real world.
For nearly fifteen years I have co-owned a gallery in San Francisco (Lost Art Salon) that specializes in the rediscovery of forgotten but important artists of the 20th Century. The gallery also contains a small “Owners Gallery” where my work is shown all throughout the year.
