Trained in printmaking at the Rhode Island School of Design, Clare Rojas is a painter inspired in equal parts by cartoons, quilting, street, and folk art. Rojas’s works accompany other Bay Area “Mission School” artists featured in the collection such as Barry McGee and Alicia McCarthy. While her signature gouache paintings explore the intersection between fairy tales and feminist ideology, their stylized human and animal characters often tell stories imbued with dark humor.
