       Matthew Cusick –  ‘Three Horses’, 2011, inlaid map, acrylic on panel, 48″x192″

 

Have you come across a book called ‘The Map as Art’ by Katharine Harmon?  I was given a copy as a Christmas present, and I highly recommend it.  And that’s where I’ve come across an artist who makes his work from maps collaged together and sometimes painted over.  Matthew Cusick has a beautifully sensitive touch, and his work is quite stunning.

            Matthew Cusick  –  “Fiona’s Wave”, 2005, inlaid maps on panel, 48″x78″

Need I say more?  This is obviously one artist I have to find out about.
