Resides in North Carolina
Peter Roux's landscapes speak to the nature of contemporary spatial experience, often informed by the vocabularies of the narrative edit. Motion, time and movement weave in as concerns in his abstract work as well, ultimately exploring similar themes.
In 2013, Roux was awarded a month-long artist residency in northern Iceland, resulting in an ongoing body of work born out of the unique space and light of the region. The initial results formed the basis of a solo show at Bryant Street Gallery in Palo Alto, California at the end of 2013, followed immediately after by a two-person exhibition at Fetherston Gallery in Seattle, Washington.
He was twice featured in New American Paintings, a juried competition-in-print published by Open Studios Press. His work is held in numerous private and corporate collections, including Fidelity, Marriott, W Hotels, Ritz-Carlton, Biogen, Meditech, and others. His work is widely exhibited throughout the United States.
Roux was an adjunct faculty member at Lesley University College of Art and Design from 2003-2014.
