Heroes & Legends

Although his first foray into sculpting with driftwood was primarily confined to animals, Cusack's inspiration and history soon made him turn to one of his favourite themes ....heroes of the ancient and mythical worlds.

Having studied ancient history and also having a fascination for the great sculptors of the Renaissance the move in this direction was a natural progression and development of his style.

His pieces are often of a truly epic scale reflecting as it were the power and strength of these heroes and legends. He likes to say "that when it comes to the scale, the ancients were the first to truly recognize the power it portrays. Extraordinary subjects deserve extraordinary scale. If you only want ordinary go outside, you can find it anywhere, it surrounds us every day".

Cusack's creative process is often aroused by paintings, and painting styles. One recent series came about because of his questions regarding Edvard Munch's "The Scream". He wondered what the outcome of the scream could possibly be. He imagined where it could lead to. It lead to him doing a series of three sculptures entitled, "The Scream 2", "The Cry" and "The Silence".
