Subject Abstract
Artwork Statement

Michael Cusack's understated approach encourages us to look beyond the visual features of the landscape and to think about how the landscape feels and is experienced. Because his painting is visually non-specific Cusack’s landscape is open to infinite interpretation.

Drawn, rubbed, smudged, scratched, collaged and obscured with veils of paint, Cusack holds his landscape outside of our understanding. We try to see or experience a landscape that is out of our reach, like an experience of the sublime landscape.
