Titled after Chicago street names, each sculpture in the Cloth° series harkens back specific times in Cleveland Dean’s life. Defined by our personal thoughts, notions, and behaviors, we wear our identities like garments.
Inspired by lust and fueled by personal progression—this is Cloth°
The work of Chicago-based visual artist Cleveland Dean addresses personal and societal quandaries within unexpected conceptual forms. His work speaks to that which is the now and explores the ways we relate to ourselves and to others in an increasingly inclusive yet isolating global environment.
