Leah Rosenberg works across artistic media to spark new experiences color. Using painting, installation, printmaking, sculpture, performance and video she invites viewers to consider how color can be perceived both multi-sensorially and multidimensionally. By creating such enriched encounters, her work strives to deepen our understanding of the emotional and psychological impact of color in everyday life.
Rooted in her belief in the fundamental generosity of art and the creative act, Rosenberg promotes an egalitarian approach to the perception of color. In such works as the commissioned mural, Everywhere A Color (2018) -- a commissioned installation at the San Francisco Airport's International Terminal -- and her book The Color Collector's Handbook (2018, Chronicle Books), she guides each person to form individualized connections to the many hues.
Based in San Francisco, Rosenberg has shown work, participated in art residency programs and been awarded fellowships locally, nationally, and internationally. Her work is part of SFMOMA's permanent collection where sh also worked as the lead pastry chef at their rooftop cafe. Combining her talents, she created a spectrum of desserts based on the museum's collection. Her most recent site-specific wall painting Getting Better Every Day a Color is currently on view through March at SFMOMA alongside the exhibition One Day At a Time: Susan O'Malley and Leah Rosenberg.
Rosenberg received a BFA from Emily Carr Institute in Vancouver, BC and an MFA from California College of the Arts in San Francisco.
