Peter Rostovsky is a Russian-born artist who works in a variety of disciplines that include painting, sculpture and installation. Known for his atmospheric paintings that explore the sublime in the everyday, he is equally committed to 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 San Diego, The New Orleans Museum of Art, PS1/MOMA, Artpace, The Santa Monica Museum of Art, the ICA in Philadelphia, the Blanton Museum of Art, S.M.A.K. Museum, and a host of private galleries. In addition to his studio practice and writing, he also teaches in a number of art schools that have included MICA, UArts, The Cooper Union, NYU, Lesley University and Parsons New School.
