Guerrero creates paintings, collages, vignettes, drawings, and objects in pursuit of an imaginary structure and space, with an architectural approach. Her work seeks to guide one towards stillness and contemplation. She works intuitively, balancing emotion and chance with intentionality in every piece. Materials included in her practice are water-based paints, Japanese washi, cement and graphite. Through careful layering of these materials, delicate shifts between opacity and transparency are achieved.
She is interested in the perception of and reaction to diffusing elements in nature such as fog, haze, or the feeling of being submerged in a body of water. These are all expressions of a fleeting moment, a shift between elemental states, a precious and subtle articulation of impermanence. These transient states affect the senses, modify perception of volumes, and alter landscape as well as mindscape.
