Cleon Peterson’s “Poison.”

Currently showing at Detroit, Michigan’s Library Street Collective is Cleon Peterson’s (Previously on Supersonic) epic solo show, “Poison.”  The show features a multitude of new paintings as well as incredible looking porcelain sculptures designed after his iconic painted subjects with a theme around the show focusing on the idea of revenge.  Peterson states that revenge is a “poison” of our current social environment and portrays this in ghastly scenes of violence being acted out by his black and white subjects.
