Leo Cussen

The work of Leo Cussen draws inspiration from Hollywood’s glamour era. His pastel works are characterised by repetition, text, movement and a sense of humour. The work has an intensity which is evident by the energetic application of his chosen medium. Cussen used repetition to embody the larger-than-life spirit of Hollywood, from a time when screen legends like Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers reigned supreme. His fascination with the entertainment industry extended to the character of Dr Who, and Cussen produced an extensive series of works based on this theme. Within the context of his art-making, Cussen’s obsessions were a positive creative force.
