Clare Rojas is known for her rich and compelling paintings. In recent years, Rojas has worked with both abstract and figurative motives, creating a dynamic, immersive narratives. Saturated and intense blocks of colour and lines and figurative laments appear systematically throughout the work, resulting in a kind of vocabulary that repeats and evolves. This visual language comes together to illuminate the scenes and spaces that are often neglected in storytelling and which normally fade into the background. 

Clare Rojas (b. 1976, USA) has exhibited extensively in Europe and North America, with notable solo exhibitions at Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago (Chicago), Museum of Craft and Folk Art (San Francisco), Museum Het Domein (Sittard), Museo de Arte Contemporaneo de Castilla y Leon (Leon), the Rose Art Museum/Brandeis University (Waltham), Knoxville Museum of Art (Knoxville), Savannah College of Art And Design (Savannah), among many others. Her work has also been shown at San Jose Museum of Art (San Jose), University of Chicago (Chicago), CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Art (San Francisco), Headlands Centre for the Arts (Sausalito), CCA Centre for Contemporary Art (Knoxville), Deste Foundation/Center for Contemporary Art (Athens), Yerba Buena Centre for the Arts (San Francisco), White Columns (New York), as well as the Institute of Contemporary Art (Philadelphia).
