My name is Carolina Rojas

Born in Venezuela, Carolina Rojas lives and works in Black Mountain, North Carolina. 

While most 9 -year-old children concentrated on coloring inside the lines, Carolina Rojas was drawing her coloring book. Given her passion for art at a young age, her family supported her creative side and placed her in art classes while growing up in Venezuela.​


“When I was 13, we were drawing nudes,” she remembers. The human body, humanity as a whole, became the root of Rojas’ art as she started experimenting with painting and Sculpture.​


Her famous “Global Man” series consists of large-scale androgynous figures, including a 9-foot tall sculpture that took two years to complete with a distinctive face void of gender or race. Today, Rojas works between Miami and North Carolina and shows in galleries around the World.

“There is a precision in her sculpture that is undeniable, a precision that is the very essence of her work. Like a scientist she analyzes the exact proportions and measurements of the formal idea, which she is projecting into new manifestations. Every aspect of the form is important, the choice of the material, the look of the surface. For Rojas, the technical aspects of the sculpture are directed toward a sensory meaning that becomes a metaphor of existence in time and space. In this sense, the precision of Rojas’s art is like a journey through some unknown metaphysical reality where the substance of life is explored and investigated, pulled apart and reconstituted. It is a purposeful equivocation poised between the physical and the metaphysical that endures in the sculpture of Carolina Rojas - welcome at planet peace".
