Art for the week, Cristina Trifiro's "La Siepe"

Christina Trifiro

Cristina Trifiro was born in Monreale (PA) in 1968, where she still lives and works.

She has Diploma in Applied Arts at the Art Institute of Monreale. She graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Palermo.

Cristina also teaches graphics, restoration, photography and painting, at the Academy of Fine Arts in Capo D'Orlando (ME)

Cristina has participated in various solo and group exhibitions and is honored with prestigious national and international awards.

Her painting and sculpture are constantly evolving, and is committed, as Francesco Carbone wrote, "not the mythical expression of harmony and beauty, but its tortuous anatomical deformation."

"Here", she says, "are the results of years of work dedicated to the recovery of a symbolic-figurative form from content."
