Cleon Peterson is a Los Angeles–based artist whose violent paintings show clashing figures, symbolizing the struggle between power and submission in contemporary society. In his dystopian visions, violence and deviance are the status quo. Peterson describes it as “a grey world where law breakers and law enforcers are one in the same; a world where ethics have been abandoned in favor of personal entitlement.” In this exhibition, more than 10 of his new monochromatic paintings, including a large format work, are going on display.
