Galerie du jour agnès b. will feature VICTORY, Cleon Peterson first solo show in Paris, France. The exhibition contains a new series of paintings and sculptures that will introduce the viewer to Peterson’s oppressive world, ‘A dark world that we all carry inside’. Victory is a black and white ballet of nightmarish mental and physical violence and conflict : facing the wall and in-your-face, Cleon Peterson offers neither a way out, nor moral judgement on the state of the world in crisis.

‘I paint a reality that not everyone experiences but one that exists and is part of our world. There is a kind of primal life that goes with this torment.’

Peterson had his first solo exhibition in Los Angeles, 2009, and he hasn’t stopped working since. After a 154 feet long mural at the Palais de Tokyo in 2014, he was invited by Jean de Loisy to be part of the Nuit Blanche project in 2016 with a monumental 2300 sq. foot painting under the Eiffel Tower. As part of the exhibition, a silkscreen print is edited, 100 copies numbered and signed, exclusively available at galerie du jour agnès b.
