Diana Guerrero-Maciá’s broad studio practice includes textiles, collage, painting, drawing, print and sculptural objects. She is most known for poetic abstractions that are assembled from hand-dyed canvas and upcycled textiles which have been deconstructed, pieced and stitched back together onto raw canvas. Her work celebrates a visual language and cultural significance that can be expressed through a material driven process. This approach to art making challenges the historical power of abstract painting by expanding on the rich narrative traditions of slow craft such as textile and quilt art. Combined with a loose, compositional style, her work shatters the formality of the grid and other Modernist visual forms, using their parts in her bold collages and constructions.
