At first glance, Diana Guerrero-Maciá’s tapestry Minding the Gap may seem like a simple pattern of fabric cutouts. But the canvas is full of coded messages. Notice the number 48, the Cuban American artist’s age when she began the piece, and, more poignant, the number 54, symbolizing the 54 cents on the dollar that Hispanic women earn compared with white men in the United States. “The piece is meant to have a searching quality, like looking to the future for a possible resolution of the discrepancies and inequalities,” says Guerrero-Maciá, whose show Slow Blossoming opens at Carrie Secrist Gallery on Saturday. “It’s about building the world you want to live in.”
