By any measure Leo Cussen was a quintessential artist, having dedicated his life to creating incredibly expressive pastel artworks that revealed his love of film and popular culture. This short video, generously produced by Leonard Joel Auction House, captures Cussen’s practice, style and personality, surveying the retrospective exhibition LEO CUSSEN: GOLDEN YEARS. The show continues until 21 October 2017.
Leo Cussen (1959 – 2015) exhibited widely both nationally and internationally during his lifetime, showing at Australian Galleries, Latrobe Regional Gallery, The Museum of Everything and National Gallery of Australia.
