Peter Rostovsky

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, Rostovsky is equally committed to pursuing conceptual and collaborative work. His 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. Rostovsky’s 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 in the US and Europe. It has been reviewed in the New York Times, New Yorker, Artforum, Art in America, Flash Art, among other publications. Meanwhile, Rostovsky’s own critical writing, written under the pen name David Geers, has appeared in October, Fillip, BOMB, The Third Rail Quarterly, The Brooklyn Rail, Paper Monument and Frieze.
