Pierre Giroux is a Vancouver based painter who has exhibited in various galleries across Canada. Pierre has studied in the Florence Program in Italy, as well as at the Ontario College of Art & Design in Toronto, Ontario.
I've always had a great interest in the rooms of times past and their associations with the people they've touched and surrounding environments they've shaped. From a staircase discovered in an abandoned farmhouse in southern Ontario to a window inspired by an Italian villa in Tuscany, this is what moves me to paint. I'm drawn to spaces - the way light plays within them, shapes casting shadows across a wall and floor and the influences incurred by the passing of time. I hope to invoke a sense of timelessness for the viewer with this body of works.
