Cute animals, fluffy clouds, blood, sex and pleasure... surreal watercolours executed in rapid brushstrokes, almost like comic panels. At first glance Cussol’s paintings appear to be made by a schoolgirl. They show birdie cards, colourful handbags, ruffled dresses and fluffy clouds with eyes and mouths. But if you look closer, the content becomes multilayered, uncomfortable and confusing. The women in the paintings do not behave as we expect them to. This book is published in conjunction with Cussol’s exhibition at the Spritmuseum in Stockholm, Sweden, 2014.
