Using only a single sheet of paper and a knife artist Rosa Leff creates intricate cityscapes based on photos she’s taken both at home and around the world. While studying papel picado (cut paper) in Puebla, Mexico, Leff contemplated the complexity of Mexican and American cultures and began to analyze the assumptions made about them. In the exhibition All The Right Places, Leff takes a deep look into these cultures as well as the misconceptions that can often arise from stereotypes and transforms them into highly-detailed cut paper artworks.

Rosa Leff received a Master of Science in Elementary Education from University of Pennsylvania and Bachelor of Arts from Sarah Lawrence College. Following her studies, Leff exhibited in numerous solo exhibitions around the country and has participated in national and international group shows. Her work has been collected by the Museum of International Folk Art and the Colored Girls’ Museum. Leff’s works have been included in multiple publications and received various awards and grants. Currently based in Baltimore, Maryland, Leff continues to create her detailed hand cut artworks.
