Kessler writes: "The best contemporary art in NYC right now can be seen in Bushwick, all in one building - 56 Bogart... [including] breathtaking wrap-around colorfield paintings by Shingo Francis... [and] Theodore:Art has one of the best shows of small abstract paintings I’ve seen in a long time."
Petersen remarks: "my work does not 'abstract' from nature, it is just that all these things are in you and if you are in touch with these memories they do come out in the work... [My compositions] are intuitive. I start with a line, with certain ideas or feelings in my head, and work from there. Things start to happen and I think that process is reflected in the work. Humor and contradiction are all a part of it."
