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.
