Pierre Giroux is an Ontario 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.
