I have watched Russ Cusick compose one of his exquisite panoramas, snapping 32 pictures, top to bottom, left to right, in quick succession, as if his body was hitting fixed stops. His portraits of the Hudson Highlands, which cover miles of landscape, are a favorite in his gallery. Russ created this image today. Click on it for the full panorama. More on Russ below.– John Cronin
A classically trained operatic baritone originally from California, Russell Cusick was awarded a full scholarship to The Julliard School and graduated from its renowned opera center in 1993. With the Hudson River as his central inspiration, Russ has translated and modulated his passion for music into visual art and photography. His art incorporates oil and acrylic paints, acrylic resins and various substrates and is mounted on wood of various sizes and shapes. Russ resides in the Hudson River Valley, where he owns and operates the Russell Cusick Gallery in Beacon, New York.
