Leah Rosenberg’s paintings, sculptures, installations and pastries explore how color, form, flavor and arrangements affect human emotion. Using a process of accrual and layering, Leah’s colorful, textural works reflect how our experiences and memories accumulate. She moved to San Francisco from Canada to pursue her MFA at the California College of Art, where she wrote her thesis on the artistic possibilities of cake. Since then, she has worked as the lead pastry chef for the rooftop coffee bar at SFMOMA where she applied her love of art, artists, and cake-making to dream up desserts celebrating the museum collection. Recent exhibitions include Happiness Is... (Montalvo Arts Center, Saratoga), Pairings (Galleri Urbane, Dallas), Bay Area Now 7 (Yerba Buena Center for the Arts), and Where Once Was None (Pro Arts, Oakland). She was the first resident artist at Irving Street Projects in San Francisco, and was awarded the Kala Art Institute Fellowship earlier this year.
For Workshop Residence, Leah designed a series of color-inspired food + drink pairings, which will culminate in a complimentary art installation.
