Art is not the place to utter propositions, and everything about America has been said a million times. What’s left for a patriot is to desecrate the flag.
These big, exuberant paintings express the torn-up feelings induced by politics, love, sex – the death of a brother and of a longtime friend. Formally, Peterzell tries to push beyond a stylistic distinction – realism and abstraction – to the unstable line between them, crossing and re-crossing it, approaching from both sides, falling off and approaching again.
