About the Artist: Matthew Cusick was born in New York, New York and is currently based in Dallas, Texas. 

"A multimedia artist working in collage, painting, and book art, Matthew Cusick is best known for his map collages of intricate, warmly colored portraits and landscapes. 'Maps have all the properties of a brushstroke: nuance, density, line, movement, and color,' he says. 'Their palette is deliberate and symbolic, acting as a cognitive mechanism to help us internalize the external.' "
