Kikki Ghezzi is an experiential artist, creating installations and paintings that interpret poignant memories of her childhood in Italy, along with more recent vivid works of universal appeal. She lives and works in New York City and Milan. Her work relies upon memory as inspiration, as she shares spiritual and often metaphysical realities. Ghezzi excels in finding the universal voice in the personal. She has exhibited her art both in the United States and in Europe. Kikki is deeply passionate about Scottish culture and traditions and has been studying Gaidhlig at Sabhal Mor Ostaig in Skye since 2016.
I came to Skye as my heart was whispering ‘vai’.
Here I found my clan, The MacDharobhnie,
And singing and dancing to magical melodies, to beauty, to joy, to life.
