NEW YORK, NY.- Andrew Kreps Gallery announced the representation of Clare Rojas (b. 1976, Columbus, OH) in partnership with Jessica Silverman, San Francisco.

The gallery will include Rojas in its presentation at Frieze New York, and will additionally present a solo exhibition of Rojas’ work in Spring 2023.

Rojas employs a deeply personal visual language in her work, alternating between dense figurative scenes, and minimal, abstract compositions. Rojas approaches both with a consistent, lyrical sensitivity as she interjects totemic references to her own life, seeking new ways to communicate narrative, playing on our instinctive desire to decode, and comprehend images. Drawing on her interest in languages shared throughout the natural world, particularly that of birds that are capable of recognizing human faces through geometric forms, Rojas looks to distill fleeting memories and experiences into concrete shapes. The resulting works are akin to a musical arrangement, mixing symbolic elements, formal decisions, as well as autobiographical allusions, to evoke life’s cycles, from sickness to health, entrapment to freedom, and birth and re-birth.

Clare Rojas lives and works in Northern California. Later this year, Rojas will be included in a group exhibition at The Contemporary, Austin. In 2021, Rojas had a solo exhibition titled Here We Go at Jessica Silverman Gallery. Past solo exhibitions include SOCO Gallery, Charlotte, NC, Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, IKON Gallery, Birmingham, UK, Rose Art Museum, Brandeis University, Waltham, MA, Savannah College of Art and Design, Savannah, and CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Art, San Francisco, among others. Clare Rojas holds a BFA in printmaking from Rhode Island School of Design and an MFA in painting from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She has been awarded grants and residencies from Artadia, Eureka Fellowship, Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation, and the Headlands Center for the Art. Rojas’ work is held in the permanent collections of MoMA, New York, SFMOMA, San Francisco, Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Castilla y León, Spain, San Jose Museum of Art, San Jose, Berkeley Art Museum, Berkeley, and the Smart Museum, University of Chicago, Chicago, among others.
