|Red & Blue (Detail of Blue) 2010|
I love collage, and I love books and maps...The incredible work of Matthew Cusick combines all of these in such an amazing way! From a distance, you cannot see the detail and amazing artistry that goes into each piece, but up close, you see how he has combined maps, book pages, and acrylic on wood panels to seamlessly make these beauties. You can visit his website here to see more, and if you are near Dallas you can see his exhibition "Defacements: A Collection of Altered Book Images" at The Free Museum of Dallas.
More inspiration for me...Just what I need, more projects to add to my pile...but I think I might be better purchasing his art, I am not sure if I would have enough vision and/or patience!
What do you think of his work?
