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.”

Joyce Fok is a unique artist who works specifically with leaves and bean pods in Hong Kong. With raw materials from nature as her canvases, she aspires to use her art to help reconnect men and nature.
Joyce started painting on dried leaves in early 2017. She was first inspired by the tenacity of fallen leaves from Indian Rubber trees (Ficus Elastica), which became her first leaf canvases. She went on to explore artistic possibilities on different kinds of leaves from plants in Hong Kong and overseas.
The subject matter of her art pieces ranges from landscape, animals, dancers, to childhood fantasies. Her style can be realistic or abstract. The diverse textures and shapes of her canvases from nature have inspired her with different compositions and approaches in her art.
