SFMOMA Artists Gallery : Clare Rojas - Male Preserve
In the exhibition "Male Preserve," Clare Rojas presents a body of work dedicated to the male nude. Sometimes referred to as folk, sometimes cartoon, Rojas's work is of a vernacular all its own while her use of line as a means of expression demonstrates one of her outstanding artistic gifts. In this show, she uses color and lines to create personable characters to great effect — sometimes funny, surreal, poignant, vulnerable, or even naïve. Certain images show naked men in poses reserved for naked women in our media culture. But rather than be objectified, Rojas's vulnerable naked men will be protected more by women. It is perhaps through women, nature, and animals that her men find wisdom, protection, and a common ground or understanding.
