Matthew Cusick. Mapping Mad

July 5, 2011

Matthew Cusick was born in 1970 in New York, NY and now lives and works in Dallas, Texas.

He received his BFA from The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art in 1993.

I feel his mix of science and art explains the complex work he now creates, a wonderful collaboration

of maps and paint. I’m not for a moment comparing the two, but there is a link in my mind back to my

early childhood days, and of the ‘Paint By Numbers’ kits I struggled to complete with any enthusiasm.

I think it’s something to do with the colour having definite visual areas in which it’s contained.

I love his roaring seas, cool landscapes and captured mapped out people.

There’s a slight amusement for me in that his motorways are made up of places to travel to and cities

to visit, I wonder if that was intentional ? You may also find this earlier blog on Ariel Views interesting.
