Floodgate by Michael Cusack


Michael Cusack is Primarily an Abstract painter. His practice extends to over twenty years. Over the years his interest in painterly solutions has played out in multiple ways with subtle changes in composition and colour relationships.

Recent developments in his practice have seen a shift in focus from shape making to the corruptions of the painted surface. This development is part of his interest in paintings role as both image and object. Through self imposed studio impediments Cusack is tugging more vigorously at the relationship between ideas and materials.
