Francesco Cusumano Artist Bio:
I was born in Carini, Palermo Sicily in 1964. My passion for art emerged early on. Painting has been a part of my life since I was a little child; paper and colours were my preferred toys. My fascination with painting continued throughout the years. I first taught myself figurative art techniques, depicting spaces and dimensions I’d observed intensively. I learned about the significance that light and dark contrast have, how to identify the proportion and how to place them in their proper relationship. Soon I realized that I wanted to go beyond realistic representations; I needed to express myself by letting my feelings take shape with my personal abstract forms and lines. My transition from figurative to abstract painting opened the door to my inner imagery. Intrigued by the works of Hans Falk and Sam Francis I continued my exploration developing my abilities during art lessons led by a great mentor, the artist Ruedi Sieber. Nowadays my abstract works are entirely done in acrylic mixed media and my art plays a major part in my life. In 2005 I was admitted into the Artist Association Zurich. My paintings are mirrors of my soul, the visual expression of my experiences and emotions, adding nuance to my everyday life. I want to convey a feeling of joy and gift viewers when they indulge in my paintings. Every time a work captures the heart of someone, it moves me deeply seeing the personal process of the viewer’s experience; how this person is responding to my painting, associating personal emotions and creating its own world. In 2014 I published my first Art Catalogue “Lichtblicke”.
