“Successive Interruptions” by MARISSA TEXTOR

Guerrero Gallery is pleased to present “Successive Interruptions”, a new body of works by Marissa Textor. Influenced by the ephemeral nature of both human emotion and the wild environment, Textor utilizes concepts from landscape painting to transform the subject matter of her pieces into living and evolving entities through which human identity can be explored and understood.

With a focus on the timeless authenticity of natural forms, Textor avoids man-made and industrial aspects that lock landscapes to a specific time period. Her aim is to present universal images that people can identify and relate to, which are also mysterious and inspiring to the unknown. By obscuring some components of her landscapes, through the integration of natural weather elements and negative space, Textor layers a sense of confusion over photo-realistically recognizable imagery.

Capturing and preserving transitory moments in a world that is constantly moving onward, Textor’s deep connection with photography serves as the backbone of her creative process. By utilizing photo-realistic imagery, she is able to straddle the line between straight documentation and subjective fiction in order to formulate narratives that address and communicate her objectives.
