Roland Petersen, works on paper from 1959 - 1969.
Roland's comprehensive works on paper from the 1950s and 60s represent a rather small, yet incredibly significant period within his seven decade-long career as an artist. During this time he was hired to work at UC Davis' nascent art department and achieved professional success through a series of one-man exhibitions held at noteworthy institutions such as the M.H. de Young Memorial Museum in San Francisco. As a whole, the pieces in this show exhibit strong formal elements throughout, and from a chronological standpoint, they vary and evolve stylistically over time. Together these components highlight this chapter of Roland's career as an era of scholarship, practice, experimentation, and personal success.
