Clare E. Rojas: Egret
Clare Rojas (b. 1976, USA) is a multi-disciplinary artist and performer. Her paintings, drawings, sculptures, and songs emerge out of examinations of the tensions within balance. Rojas’ highly individualized visual language also proliferates from a personal, abstract totemic form evocative of the shape of a drop of water or a mountain. That form has evolved over time, from an abstract shape Rojas instinctively drew to something concrete she began noticing in her everyday visual environment. Says Rojas, “The more I drew it and meditated on the shape, the more I saw it everywhere I looked. I found it in the figure, in nature, in water, in land, in animals.”
This book is a survey of Rojas's works on paper, shown as full-color reproductions and accompanied by a facsimile of hand-written text by the artist.
