Houston artist Claire Cusack exhibits new work in an exhibit Journeys. Cusack collects discarded objects from railroads, beaches, rural areas, garages...and in her travels. Her constructions are meticulously rendered and display an exquisite, raw spirituality.
Claire Cusack lives in a world inspired by ordinary objects. Whether in her native Texas or worldly travels she invariably finds "meaningful" trash that she transforms into unexpected and exquisite sculptures. Her meticulous way of bringing different textures of objects together; shiny and clear against solid, rustic and rough against soft or smooth, not only will tell of a story about the creation, but delivers new life and a fresh vision to Cusack's 'treasured' chest.
