Matthew Cusick’s Defacements

Matthew Cusick is known for his paintings made with maps that we have featured here in the past. Cusick is also creating a body of work he calls “Defacements”. Pages from vintage schoolbooks are found, scraped and sanded to remove all but the page number, an image, and a few chosen words. The artist removes in order to reveal. The result is work that comments on the human condition, the environment, politics, and the physical act of delicate deconstruction.
