Leah Rosenberg's work spans painting, sculpture, installation and pastry exploring the ways color, form, flavor, and arrangements affect human emotion.
For her residency at ISP, Rosenberg painted the gallery a different hue selected from the surrounding neighborhood for fifty days. Each day she marked off a width of tape to preserve a stripe of the previous days’ color, gradually creating a low relief site-specific striped mural.
Each day’s color was announced by Leah on her instagram account along with its source photo. The public was also invited to attend a sunset happy hour, join in a color walk, witness the stripe reveal and attend a talk about the project. In the end, Leah served striped cake and the fifty layers of paint peeled right off the walls (with a cake server).
To commemorate the project, Leah made a limited edition poster documenting each day's color. Posters are available at ISP and through Leah's website:
