"By showing paintings in radically different sizes and including modestly scaled drawings, Petersen’s exhibition expresses something few painters are willing to own: it conveys vulnerability as well as a commitment to remaining open and adventuresome. This is why I have the feeling there is much more to come in what is already a strong body of work."
