The Sins

Hernando Cortez - Conquistadors 1519

Soho, London 1892 1st of May

Capturing history, telling a tale, describing an action, and creating memorable characters were all once primary purposes for which an artist applied paint to canvas. But somewhere along the way narrative ceased to be a central concern for the great modernist painters, and storytelling all but disappeared from the scene. However, fortunately, though sporadically, an ambitious modern day painter will once again take up the challenge, and even more occasionally, will actually succeed. For the narrative form to be effective in painting, the stories that are told must successfully engage our curiosity; it requires an intensely shared interest in the tale of the figures who are depicted in the paintings. And so it is in the works of Vladimir Cusack, whose sensitivity and creativity come through intelligently in his marvelously detailed paintings.

Born and schooled in Russia, Cusack completed art school and then earned a degree in electronics. He worked in the Bukhara theater, Uzbekistan, moved back to Russia, and in 1995 moved to Australia taking only two paintings with him. There he started a new life, learned a new language, and began painting once again.
