Roland Petersen
Satellite Series, 1972 framed geometric abstract aerial view of California

1972

About

The Satellite Series an abstract aerial series where precise geometry juxtaposed against the free form shapes of the cloud shadows with a three dimensional layering of the medium imagined with bright colors of the central valley floor. Roland Petersen is a Bay Area painter whose paintings are masterful syntheses of gestural abstract expressionism, painterly realism, and advanced color theory. His work integrates still life, figures, and landscape into complex, architectonic compositions that are beautiful and enigmatic, but still retain a strong sense of place, in this case the fields and farms of California’s Central Valley. An active figure in the Bay Area art scene for over forty years, Petersen has taught generations of artists not only painting but also printmaking and photography. He lives in the Bay Area and continues to paint actively. Petersen's work has been exhibited in museums and galleries around the country, and is represented in major museum collections, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York City; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York City; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, D.C.; Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco; and Philadelphia Museum of Art. .
