Nadia Secreto creates organized minimalist structures for both indoor and outdoor formats. In addition to these sculptural works, Nadia also works in photography, her portfolio offering a wide selection of quiet, gritty black and white images.

Nadia’s photography portfolio is quite beautiful. Organized into a number of different galleries, each series of photos tells a story about a particular place, feeling or moment in time. Most of the works are in black and white, and those that are in color are slightly muted and desaturated, creating a nostalgic feeling as if they are fragments of memories.

In her sculpture and installation practice, Nadia often uses premade objects and found materials, deconstructing them to look at their shape, texture, or out-of-context function. In a recent work, We Are Here, the artist created a strange form out of curved, two-dimensional cut-outs, placing it in various locations to differing effect.
