> DESCRIPTION

Kavi Gupta Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition of new work by Clare Rojas entitled Spaces in Between. Clare Rojas is a storyteller and is highly regarded for her paintings, installations, and performances that explore the private narrative. Often engaging in political and social sentimentalities, her work speaks in a signature language of figures, patterns, and animals inspired by folk art. Spaces in Between introduces us to a new chapter in Rojas' career. In this new body of work, Rojas has done away with the figures of her stories in the past, and zoned in on exploring space and place. While more minimal and architectural the attention to detail remains faithful to Rojas' body of work in these new paintings. Clare Rojas' exhibition reminds us to slow down and take in the silence and pauses in the story, to look around and read the spaces in between.


Clare Rojas (b. 1976) lives and works in San Francisco. Solo museum shows include Riverside Art Museum, CA; The Rose Art Museum, Boston; Museo De Arte Comtemporaneo De Castilla y Leon; Museum Het Domein, Sittard; Ulrich Museum of Art, Wichita; Knoxville Museum of Art and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago. Rojas has also had solo exhibitions at Deitch Projects, NY; Modern Art, London; Gallery Paule Anglim, San Francisco and Galleri Nicolai Wallner, Copenhagen.
