Juan Uslé — De la luz silenciosa
De la luz silenciosa
Past: November 8, 2012 → January 12, 2013
Juan Uslé is a sensitive and private artist who avoids the madding crowds and likes to be able to concentrate. The act of painting generates an intimate, poetic and musical impulse in him. For a number of years he has been creating a series of works, the Soñé que revelabas, which he paints at night, aligning the series of dark brushstrokes to the rhythm of his beating heart. Although apparently abstract, his painting is sustained by the observation of reality, a meditation on the artists he admires, and it oscillates between a romantic nocturnal pole and a baroque and brightly coloured solar pole.
Whilst he has regularly exhibited his work over the last decade in California, New York, London, Berlin and, of course, in Spain, his painting has not been shown in Paris since 2002.
Born in 1954 in Santander, the artists splits his time between his home-studio in Saro, in the green hills of Cantabria, Spain, and New York where he has lived for nearly 25 years. His works are displayed in many European museums including the Musée national d’art moderne in Paris, the Tate Modern in London, the Irish Museum in Dublin, the Moderna Museet in Stockholm, the Reina Sofia in Madrid, the Staatsgalerie in Stuttgart and Munich, and in America.
