OPENING EXHIBIT 8.17.18 (7-10 PM)
Cleveland Dean pulls from various elements and life experience and has formed an individual style that reflects his vision and his studies of philosophy, sociology, psychology, history as well as acting as a voyeur of humanity. The centered ideology is to evoke individual thought for the viewer, as opposed to being conditioned to what one should think and see, and how such resonates into other aspects of their lives.
“My goal is to simply recondition people to think, adhere to knowledge and broaden their experience. The time to awaken from this degradation of intellect is now.”
Primarily Cleveland Dean’s work finds creation via painting, mixed media, installation, video, sculpture and photography.
