“One of the main inspirations that I have is anger. If I can be angry about something, it means I feel passionate about it. It makes me want to make art about it”, Cleon Peterson says. Nonetheless, his art is not dealing with violence on a superficial level, and it is not used as a tool of provocation per se. His simple compositions entail complex connotations and an unsettling critique of society’s ever-growing disenfranchisement, isolation, and desperation. Looking at his work, one can easily understand that the artist is not advocating for violence, which he, instead, weaponizes in the battle with apathy. What’s alarming for Peterson in our world is not the poverty, injustice, and cruelty alone but the lack of reaction to them.
