  • About the work

Mixed media on plywood.

Cusack employs a highly physical technique, full of striving and intense focus. He takes a layered, inquisitive, painterly approach to his work. He builds his surfaces up with color, coaxing shapes into existence.

He uses color to create drama. His shapes and forms are locked in struggle: sometimes color and space allow them to relax, other times the elements of the work push the composition towards conflict.
