NEW YORK, NEW YORK, October 2013 ––Vladimir Restoin Roitfeld presents an untitled solo exhibition of 24 new paintings by Clare Rojas. It is Rojas’s first showing in New York since her hiatus from painting and this reintroduction reveals her evolution into the visual language of abstract expression.
Rojas has created a comprehensive body of abstract paintings that deals with the ideas of balance and harmony through color and space. Where Rojas once worked on the emphasis of narrative content, this collection represents her new practice towards geometric compositions where she builds angular conversations in the negative spaces between the storylines. Accompanying the 24 works Rojas has written three poems which will also be on display.
The exhibition is on view from Sunday, November 11 – December 15, 2013. Vladimir Restoin Roitfeld, an intimate project space for contemporary art, is located in the heart of the Upper East Side gallery district at 5A East 78th Street, New York, NY 10075.
