Cleon Peterson Presents “POISON” Exhibition

Los Angeles-based artist Cleon Peterson is showcasing his latest works at Detroit’s contemporary art gallery, Library Street Collective. Just like his previous works, his latest project titled “POISON,” portrays a strong sense of violence, through graphic monochromatic acrylic-on-canvas pieces and porcelain sculptures. “POISON” focuses on revenge. “It’s often a motivation for war and justification for punishment; it’s a social impulse that is destructive and easy to become complicit in,” Peterson explains. He has used archaic forms to address ongoing social issues, which gives a truly timeless effect to his work. “POISON” will run until October 15.
