Slow Blossoming is a modern and conceptual update on the 18th century social gatherings known as a Salon. This exhibition brings together art work in a variety of mediums along with a series of social events, and a gallery installation reminiscent of the traditional Salon experience. Guerrero-Maciá’s myriad of symbols, texts, materials and visual juxtapositions all combine for a cumulative effect that positions iconography as a still-valuable interpretive tool for understanding that which surrounds us. Through the use of semiotics, or the study of signs and symbols as elements of communicative behavior, specific themes such as gender equality, the tension between craft and fine arts, and references to both literary and scientific constructs are explored.
