Matthew Cusick

Matthew Cusick_surface and surfaceMap collages from New York based artist Matthew Cusick.  Some of these are on show at ‘The Mind is in it’s Own Place’ exhibition at Pavel Zoubok Galley in New York. I like the idea of these excessively intricate works using thousands of sections of maps rearranged to depict reclining nudes, waves and landscapes. I guess you could say there’s some political undertones of colonisation, war, and foreign culture here but they look great even if you don’t think about all that stuff.
