Clare Rojas produces gouaches and large installations that reference Pennsylvania Dutch hex signs, Russian nesting dolls, and American comic books, to produce installations that are like a hand-made quilt, drawing from universal themes in folk artutility, community, individuality and symbolism.

In this very personal world, Rojas is constantly poking fun at gender roles and representation, ironic and funny but also deeply critical. The largescale installations often act as a stage for Rojas's musical performances. At most of her exhibition openings, Rojas performs as one of the characters that often appear in her paintings, Peggy Honeywell.

Rojas has celebrated solo exhibitions domestically and globally.
