Carolina Rojas is a Colombian artist-educator and designer, based in New York. Through drawings, assemblages and installations, Rojas’s artistic practice explores life-death dichotomies and human-nonhuman-animal relationships. Inspired by Victorian-era curiosities, she integrates nonhuman animal themes and conservation, bridging art, education, and natural sciences. Her contributions to pedagogy and art have been presented and exhibited individually and collectively worldwide. Currently, her work is part of Sketch Gallery.
