SAN FRANCISCO, CA — Black & White Projects (formerly ASC Projects) is pleased to launch it’s new identity with an exhibition in full color. Leah Rosenberg: Color and Scale presents works from the artist’s recent residencies at Bemis Center For Contemporary Arts and Kala Art Institute, as well as a special project in dialogue with the vintage industrial scale — an interior remnant from the buildings historic industrial felt factory days.

Leah-Rosenberg-painting-100-ColorsSpanning painting, sculpture, installation and pastry, Leah Rosenberg’s work explores how color, form, flavor and arrangements affect human emotion. Using a process of accrual and layers, Rosenberg’s works personify how our experiences and memories accumulate, creating a piece with a vivid variety of color and texture. Rosenberg 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. Rosenberg 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’s work. Recent exhibitions include Happiness Is… (Montalvo Arts Center, Saratoga), Pairings (Galleri Urbane, Dallas) and Bay Area Now 7 (Yerba Buena Center for the Arts).
