Creative Map Collages by Matthew Cusick

Published Jul 20, 2012

Matthew Cusick is a collage artist living in Dallas, Texas.

Some of his most striking pieces are included in the “Map Works” series, created using old maps and other materials. The artist explains:

“I discovered that fragments of maps have all the properties of a brushstroke: nuance, density, line, movement, and color. Their palette is deliberate and symbolic, acting as a cognitive mechanism to help us internalize the external. And furthermore, since each map fragment is an index of a specific place and time, I found I could combine fragments from different maps and construct geographical timelines within my paintings. The maps also enabled me to achieve both a cut, hard-edge and a more nuanced, almost impressionistic one. The technique and conceptual applications continue to evolve. It’s a very generous medium.”
