ABOUT TEODORA GUERERRA
Teodora Guererra’s abstract artistic vision has evolved throughout her years spent painting and teaching in Fairfield County, Connecticut; Tucson, Arizona, and upstate New York. Arizona’s naturally radiant landscape and arid climate led her to experiment with rich under-painting and vivid color; while the shifting seasons of the East Coast inspired Guererra to pursue dripping and staining techniques. Her focus has always been pushing the limits through experimentation with new materials.
“As an artist, painting can be tormenting and sublime at the same time. I'm a big risk taker, constantly experimenting with new and different materials to layer, stain and saturate color on large surfaces. My most successful work achieves a sense of fluid movement with saturated color, that is complex yet minimalistic.”
Guererra received her undergraduate and graduate art degrees from Southern Connecticut University, The College of Saint Rose and Skidmore College.
Guererra’s paintings can be found in public and private collections across the U.S., including the Allmen Health and Wellness Center for Women in New York and SUNY Brockport, NY, William & Sonoma, San Francisco, CA.
Her influences are Pat Steir, John McCracken, Helen Frankenthaler, Donald Jud, Bernar Venet, Agnes Martin and Brian Rutenberg.
"Sometimes the few people I see ask, where have you been, and I smile and say I’ve been traveling, which sometimes is true but often I’ve been in my studio for far too long. I’m a bit of a recluse so you will probably never meet me, but you will see my artwork. I am also a bit of an addict, because I can’t stop thinking about the painting I am working on or the next one I want to start. And finally, I’m a big risk taker, so the work is often a series of continuous failures until I can work it out and then, when everything comes together, it’s heaven. Painting can be tormenting and sublime at the same time which make the challenge to finish a completed work so addicting. I am interested in the staining and saturation of color and my most successful work achieves a clean color vibrancy, with a sense of fluid movement. The end result should be a painting that glides us across the canvas like a symphony, drowning out all the everyday noise we live in.”
