The Profound Suffering of Cleon Peterson’s Art

Note: Contains images that may be considered graphic and disturbing to some readers.

There is an inherent violence in the work of LA-based visual artist Cleon Peterson that penetrates deep into our society and the nature of humanity. Though at times his figures appear that they have stepped out of classical antiquity, this is portrayed with a very modern eye for garish blood and gore.
