Art: The Whole Story, Thames and Hudson Publishing
"Peterson's paintings have a timeless symbolic meaning rather than the mere appearance of a photograph. While hyper-real in definition, they are also breaking from the structures of photography."
Photorealism: More Than Eye Candy, Art and Antiques Magazine
"Peterson's semiotic paintings are more deliberate polymorphic illusions of reality and considerably less monolithic than those found in traditional photorealism. These works invite wonder both for their high standard of craftsmanship and the individual vision of the artist."
L'Aperitivo Illustrato Magazine
"Peterson's hyperrealism seems to incorporate POP culture within an existential frame of reference. At times phantasmagorical, these optically convincing images are often their own simulacra - altered realities challenging verisimilitude, perception and illusion."
Hard Times, Butler Institute of American Art
"The incredible realism of his cityscapes of downtown Time Square and life on the streets bewilders viewers."
A Brush Stroke for Every Human Suffering, Media Watch
"This instance of hyperrealism is a performance art. Viewers are deliberately made to notice the amazing amount of time and painstaking effort that went into portraying this. Peterson isn't showing off; he is a radical painter, compelling us with his dedication. The astonishing realism is in the context of reflected light from every other object in the scene."
