Cristina Secco found in the manipulation of soft and comfortable natural fabrics and yarns such as wool, silk, linen, and the application of ancient techniques such as felt and nunofeltre, the expressive way to create contemporary forms to wear.
Transparencies and velvets obtained through the manipulation of materials, shapes and colors are the visible part of their inner emotional process. The nuances that emerge thanks to the artisanal work are always different but always, and to the same extent, precise in the execution. The tissues are often manipulated to the stage of dyeing made with natural essences derived from the plants. The fibers are interwoven to create precious plots.
The work of Cristina Secco who so unusually privileges the matter and the touch is similar to the sculptural process. Its ‘forms to wear’ are contemporary creations that look to the future with respect to the past.
