Libby Rosa born 1993, Pittsburgh PA. Rosa’s work mines the social and political dilemmas of female performativity in the 21st century through the vocabularies of theatrical backdrop painting and surreal landscape, and relies on the technique of collage cut-up to redirect the often-violent pressures internalized by a female body into a communicative and regenerative artistic action. Libby lives and works in Ithaca, New York.
Rosa receives her MFA from Cornell University in May 2019 and received her BFA from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2015. She will appear in New American Paintings, No. 141, MFA Issue, 2019. She has recently exhibited with Got It For Cheap at The Hole, New York, NY (2019), Signal, Brooklyn, NY (2018), Marquee Projects, Bellport NY (2017), Proto Gallery, Hoboken, NJ (2017), Trestle Gallery, Brooklyn, NY (2016), and Sweet Lorraine Gallery, Brooklyn, NY (2016). She has attended residencies including ASMBLY Session #1, Brooklyn, NY (2017), Trestle Open Studio Residency, Brooklyn, NY (2016-2017) and VCU SSP, Richmond, VA (2015).
