Lot description
Clare Rojas is an American artist born in 1976 who is best known for her folk-inspired work, Rojas uses a wide range of media, including painting, installation and print-making, with a smart sense of humor, to make observations on gender relations and representation.

Characteristically made using flat blocks of colour, betraying her origins as a printmaker, Rojas’ paintings are filled with subjects and iconography from fables and tales. Narratives are woven throughout. Architecture and people morph into increasingly abstracted conglomerations of pattern while evoking a range of symbolic associations. Similarly Rojas’ paintings act as components in larger installations, the walls of the gallery covered by a patchwork of painted panels akin to quilting, or hung in rows from peg rails. These assemblages combine to recall references from West Coast Modernism to Native American or Latino craft,
outsider art and street graffiti.
