Cuciti a Macchina (1958-1963)

Along with silkscreen is another industrial tool that generated a new artistic cycle. Nuvolo inaugurated “Cuciti a macchina” (machine sewn) items in 1958-1962 using a Vigorelli sewing machine, to which he added a small engine. The collage technique is applied to shreds of different fabrics, composed into elegant forms on a painting surface of different materials such as cotton, velvet, fustian, suede, and batik. Often, the fabric comes from old clothes, giving a feeling of “lived-in” and “everyday life” to the series.
