Ana Guerra's exhibition will present new works in painting. The complex harmonies of glazed color and layered surfaces on panel embody Ana Guerra’s Latin American background and heritage. Surface and saturation are the predominant first impressions of Guerra’s recent paintings that consider opposing complexities of perception. The illusion of contradiction between inner and outer, familiar and bizarre, fast and slow, infinitesimal and infinite is reduced into luxurious layers of paint. Here, the interior life is visible and the seemingly impossible is fixed and inviting.
Ana Guerra graduated, with honors, in painting and printmaking, from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1974. Prior to RISD, Guerra was trained at the Corcoran College of Art + Design, Washington, DC.
