Cleveland Dean: Recto/Verso – Duality of a Fragile Ego
February 3–July 29, 2018 (February 9, 5–8pm: Exhibition Open House)
Chicago Cultural Center • Michigan Avenue Galleries, 1st Floor South
The abstract and conceptual works by Cleveland Dean are presented through a wide range of prosaic materials executed in mixed-media on panels and sculptures. The charred and highly reflective surfaces, grids, wood, cement and resin create tension-filled objects that invite the viewer to reflect into their own psyche and remind them that they are greater than they may believe.
