Papeles Print Edition i, 2023

Using kozo and mitsumata fiber washi paper made during a residency in Shikoku, Japan, Papeles are an exploration of what Guerrero describes as the “diffusing elements in nature.” Shifting effects of opacity and transparency, precision and expression are achieved through the layering of different paints and fiber textures. Guerrero uses this delicate balance between chance and intention to express our perception of transient elemental phenomena, such as fog, smoke or the feeling of being submerged in water. For this series, Picture Room has published the Papeles collages as a print edition.
