About the Artist:

Originally from Saskatchewan, Rod Mireau now makes Peterborough his home.  Since graduating from the Ontario College of Art & Design in 1997, Rod has had many exhibitions including a 2018 show at the Art Gallery of Peterborough.   Other credits include exhibitions at XEXE gallery and the 2017 Artists Project Art Fair in Toronto. Rod participates in the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition. His work is held in private collections in Toronto, Brooklyn, and Dubai.

“I create sculptures using both traditional woodworking techniques and modern wood shaping applications. I have begun to introduce new materials including metals, plastics and paint. While wood continues to be central in my work, this use of a more diverse range of materials allows me to explore new sculptural possibilities and opens up my work to a broader dialogue.”
