A Map of the World
In his Map Works series, Dallas-based artist Matthew Cusick has created intricate collages out of maps and acrylic paint. Echoing traditional Japanese woodcuts in some and Lucian Freud in others, the images depict people and the natural world through the harsh lines and bold colors of maps. It is almost as though humanity’s attempts to capture and illustrate the complexity of Earth with a series of spheres, borders, and grids is being reflected back as a truly futile mission.
