Plain Black: Abstract Paintings


by Clare Rojas


This volume surveys the recent abstractions of the much-admired San Francisco painter Clare Rojas (born 1976). With their lively angularity and bold chromaticism, these paintings are equally evocative of folk art and the formalist reductions of key modernist abstract artists such as Alexander Calder, Matisse, Malevich or Ellsworth Kelly. Accompanying these works is an essay by the curator and Deputy Director of the Jewish Museum, Jens Hoffmann, and a poem by David Whyte.
