Gary Petersen is a native New Yorker and holds a B.S. degree from The Pennsylvania State University and an M.F.A. from The School of Visual Arts. He lives in Hoboken, New Jersey and was awarded a studio at The Marie Walsh Sharpe Foundation, Space Program 2010-2011, in Brooklyn, New York. In his own words Petersen identifies as “an abstract painter using geometry, particularly line, to reflect vulnerability and uncertainty in the world and in the self. Color allows the somewhat familiar forms to become personal and subtly eccentric.”
