‘...As a devotee of literary figure and fellow countryman Samuel Beckett, the Irish-born Cusack’s erasure action embodies Beckett’s frequent mandate of ‘less is more’. Reborn from this new energy, the paintings become framed with irregular edges, remodelled by hollows and marks and radically altered through the humble economy of artistic means’ excerpt Sharne Wolff

Michael Cusack has been exhibiting at Martin Browne Contemporary since 2004. This latest exhibition continues Cusack’s restrained exploration of shape and colour, representative, perhaps, of memory and relations. Poetry as both a formal reference and conceptual play informs the work.

Originally from Dublin, Cusack emigrated to Australia in 1982 and currently has a studio in Mullumbimby, NSW. He recently completed a Master of Visual Arts from Griffth University, Brisbane.
