The freedom Cullen applies in assembling his work echoes the ideas of artists such as Jean-Michel Basquiat or Robert Rauschenberg who physically deconstructed painting in order to look for ways to extend its possibilities. The result is deliberate, richly built-up surfaces that flip between 2D and 3D relief and demonstrate an intuitive and subtle sensitivity towards this hands-on working process.
