For more than 20 years, American Peter Roux has been fascinated with distance and edge, often how it is applied to landscapes. His work is part of commissioned corporate collections at Four Seasons Hotels and is on permanent display at the DeCordova Museum in Massachusetts. A former adjunct Professor of Fine Art at Lesley University College of Art and Design in Boston, he now lives in Asheville, North Carolina.

Roux’s oil-based work with the universal forms of the sky landscape – clouds – provide a familiar entry point into each painting. They also signify varied emotion, especially depending how Roux edits them. Clouds offer challenging and expressive edges for a painter, and as in real life, Roux’s works holds light in stunning and unique ways.

I’m just as interested in how we see in our contemporary world as what we look at. Clouds offer us avenues of metaphor and reflection, while at the same time suggesting what lies beyond our own immediate realities.
