Pierre Grioux is a Cornwall based painter who has exhibited in various galleries across Canada. Pierre studied in the Florence Program in Italy, as well as the Ontario College of Arts & Design in Toronto.
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 abondoned farmhouse 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 castin 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.
