Peter Rostovsky is a Russian-born artist who works in a variety of disciplines that include painting, sculpture, installation and digital art. 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 to its encounter with new technologies. Recently, Rostovsky has expanded his practice to explore e-books, graphic novels and comics as hybrid forms that integrate writing and visual imagery.

His work has been shown widely both in the United States and abroad, including The Walker Art Center, PS1/MOMA, Artspace and The Contemporary Arts Forum in Santa Barbara. Private galleries include Sara Meltzer, Elizabeth Dee, The Project, Danese, Salon94 and Gio Marconi.

In addition to his artistic practice, Rostovsky also writes art criticism under the pen name David Geers. Focusing on the convergence of art, politics and technology, his writing has appeared in October, Fillip, Bomb, The Third Rail Quarterly, The Brooklyn Rail and Frieze. He currently teaches at New York University and Parsons New School.
