Known for his atmospheric paintings that explore the transcendental and sublime in the everyday, Peter Rostovsky 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 to its encounter with new technologies.

His work has been shown widely both in the United States and abroad. It has been exhibited at: The Walker Art Center, PS1/MOMA, Artpace, The Contemporary Arts Forum in Santa Barbara, The Santa Monica Museum of Art, the ICA in Philadelphia, the Blanton Museum of Art, SMAK Museum in Ghent. Private galleries include Sara Meltzer, Elizabeth Dee, The Project, Danese, Salon94, and Gio Marconi. He also teaches painting at New York University.
