Artist of the moment………Clare Rojas

 

 

Clare Rojas is a painter of the figure and also abstract works. Clare Rojas was born in Columbus, Ohio in the year 1976. Rojas is also an avid printmaker.

For her collegiate education Rojas attended the Rhode Island School of Design located in Providence, Rhode Island earning a B.F.A. Rojas went on to earn an M.F.A. from the Art Institute of Chicago.

The artist is based out of San Francisco, California.

Her figurative works remind me of artist Alex Katz. My favorite works are her abstract paintings. Rojas creates shapes and uses vivid color that reminds the viewer of the majesty of hand sewn quilts.

Price range information: Sorry none available.

A great interview with the artist talking about how quilts and feminism inspire some of her work:

Rojas often works with gouache and latex on board.
