UW-Madison Art Dept. | Fall 2021 Visiting Artist Colloquium: Diana Guerrero-Maciá

November 17, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:15 pm

Diana Guerrero-Maciá is an artist working in the expanded fields of painting and textiles. She values craft, consciousness, sustainability, and material metaphor. Her studio practice, spanning over twenty-five years, includes slow-craft processes in painting, textiles, drawing, print, and sculptural objects. Guerrero-Maciá is most known for her Unpainted Pictures—paintings constructed with textile cutwork, stitching, collaging, and dye that she began working on in the early 1990’s and continues to make today. The haptic moments of touch, revealed in her materials, compiled over years, folded into colorful abstractions, holds time. Color and decoration, in all their expansiveness and elusiveness, are integral to Guerrero-Maciá’s work. As a child of exile, she recognizes that history, form, and identity are ever changing and her art champions transformation. She samples equally from lived experience, internet databases, and Modernist & Medieval works of art, among many random sources.
