About the artist
Guerrero-Maciá’s studio practice is driven by the potential between painting and textiles using collage methods that are shape-, color-, and symbol-driven. As she reflected on her residency at Island Press, she noted, “It seemed natural to work through print processes that could echo my visual language in hybridity. We experimented in embossing, transparency of color, and chine collé and worked through the constraints of these processes to create this set of prints.”
Guerrero-Maciá has exhibited nationally and internationally, created several public art commissions, and received multiple grants and residencies, including a Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Award and two fellowships at the MacDowell Colony. Selected solo exhibitions include the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago and the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis. Additional exhibitions include Elmhurst Art Museum (Chicago), Sonoma Valley Museum of Art (California), Loyola University Museum of Art (Chicago), and the Bronx Museum. She studied and was awarded fellowships at both Skowhegan School of Art and Penland School of Craft. She holds an MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art and BFA from Villanova University. She is an associate professor at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
