“Pressman brings us to paint-laden abstraction. Graphic swaths of chromatic paint form the topmost layer of paintings that ask us to look deep into their surface, where scribed lines and scraped passages form a structural matrix. The broad strokes recall Franz Kline, while the overall markings and dense under lay- ers reference the paintings of Lee Krasner, but the result is uniquely the artist’s own.”
