Steve Turner is pleased to present Kishkas, a solo exhibition by Los Angeles-based Gabby Rosenberg which features four new abstract paintings that revisit colors and geometric forms that have appeared throughout past works. For this new series, Rosenberg enlarged details of previous works, and in doing so, created compositions that allude to the body without depicting its exact form. Working without a rigid agenda, the paintings are born from Rosenberg’s more visceral feelings about color and composition. Kishkas, which in Yiddish means gut or intestine, explores how emotion comes to be stored in the body, with the gut serving as a vessel for human instinct.
Gabby Rosenberg (born Chicago, 1992, lives Los Angeles) earned a BA from Hampshire College (2014) and an MFA from CalArts (2018). She has had solo exhibitions at Steve Turner, Los Angeles (2019, 2020 & 2021) and her work has also been included in group exhibitions at the Contemporary Jewish Museum, San Francisco (2019); Untitled, Miami Beach (2019) and Expo Chicago (2022). This is Rosenberg’s fourth solo exhibition with Steve Turner.
