Peter Rostovsky: About
Peter Rostovsky is a Russian-born artist and writer who works in a variety of disciplines that include painting, sculpture, installation, digital art and comics. Known for his paintings that explore the sublime in the everyday, he is equally committed to pursuing conceptual and collaborative work. Rostovsky’s many diverse projects attempt to bridge the gap between painting and conceptual art while remaining attentive to painting’s material and discursive history, and especially to its encounter with new technologies. His work has been shown widely both in the United States and abroad and has been exhibited at such venues as The Walker Art Center, MCA Santa Barbara, PS1/MoMA, Artpace, The Santa Monica Museum of Art, the ICA Philadelphia, the Blanton Museum of Art, S.M.A.K. and a host of private galleries. While he has recently pursued fiction and hybrid image/text forms like comics, his critical writing, under the heteronym David Geers, has been published in October, Fillip, BOMB, The Third Rail Quarterly, The Brooklyn Rail, Unbag and Frieze. Rostovsky currently teaches at NYU, Parsons New School and Lesley Art + Design.
