Graham Gussin was born in London in 1960. He studied at Middlesex Polytechnic between 1981 and 1985 and completed an MA at Chelsea School of Art in 1990. Since his first solo exhibitions at the Chisenhale Gallery, London and Primo Piano, Rome in 1993, HYPERLINK "http://www.tumblong.uts.edu.au/art/artist4/cv.cfm"he has shown extensively in Britain and abroad. He has curated exhibitions for the Showroom and Interim Art in London.
Using a variety of media including painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, film, video and sound installation Gussin produces works that engage with the human experience of the infinite. He is conscious of the ways in which at the end of the twentieth century our experience of the world is manipulated and transformed by a complex layering of mass communications and consumerism. Gussin's work often suggests a melancholic sense of loss or displacement, playing on our desire to be somewhere else, in a different time or place.
Gussin's many sources include travel brochures, magazines such as National Geographic, television and films. In recent years he has been particularly interested in science fiction.
