Artist Statement

Schust’s work investigates formalism as a legitimate form of contemporary practice. Painting I employs a quasi-trompe l’oeil effect within the confines of a graphic presentation; the immediate, graphic impact is in direct contrast to the material and physical qualities of the paint itself.
