  • Christopher

    These are incredible!

  • mickaëlle ruckert

    Nice, but I can’t help but think of Wim Delvoye.

  • Ralf

    Reminds me of the scifi book Absolution Gap (Alastair Reynold). Very cool

  • Peebs

    This is wonderful! Everyone associates churches with war and now you’ve just went ahead and displayed that in the most quaint and witty manor!

      correction-”everyone on the politically correct left ” associates churches with war.

    perfect statement. How big are these pieces? They are wonderful as is everything I’ve seen by this artist.

  • Gianni Degryse

    Yes, this looks like Wim Delvoye but way too obvious, not subtle. The message is so simple….

  • argos

    if only all religious institutions looked like this then maybe we’d have peace.

Artist Spotlight: Cleon Peterson


The violent, mesmerizing, and brutally honest work of artist Cleon Peterson. In some paintings demon-like characters are attacking people, in other paintings similar actions are being carried out by uniformed figures. What is perhaps most disturbing is the realisation that we are drawn to such darkness; titillating news headlines, and bloody movies. The violence is inside of us all. More images below.
