Passing Through - A Solo Exhibition by Chad Cleveland
Chad Cleveland – ARTIST STATEMENT | 2019
This show represents my body of work I created from 2017 – present. This particular group of work exemplifies my evolution as on artist shifting from the traditional portrait to a more contemporary format. These paintings are a grasp at a visual snapshot of my experience with people entwined with fleeting moments in time. The images seem to be constructing and deconstructing all at once, indicating the transient nature of our existence. Nothing seems to be settled in the image, and there are only indications of a brief stillness of the subject matter. As for myself, the figures reside in a spiritual space, laden with images of nature, as well as the looming presence of messenger crows. Overall, the paintings embody my wonder of the human spirit, and the indication of parallel experiences/worlds.
Our mission is to create a center for exploration, collaboration and spiritual fusion within the holistic wellness, performing and visual art practices. All Art Exhibitions may be viewed by all those attending classes seven days a week or by booking an appointment.
