The alchemist believed a creative work has a life all its own, independent of creator, straddling the worlds of matter and psyche, of both and neither.

Christian Restrepo is a Boston-based American/Colombian maker and the architect of SIGILO. A body of work that echos those ideas of the alchemist, with pieces created in a slow cooked manner. Using unusual and mundane materials, he explores intimate and human emotions through an obsessive, almost ritualistic process, learning to look at things not for what they are, but rather for what they could be.

 Obsessed with the process, it defines the results.
