ORGANIZATION: Bombas Gens Centre d’Art
ARTIST: Juan Uslé
CURATORS: Nuria Enguita and Vicent Todolí
Juan Uslé works from photography and memory to present evocative painting linked to abstraction. This exhibition presents a selection of the artist’s works from the late eighties of the twentieth century–with expressionist, abstract landscapes and robust brushstrokes–to a sample of the series Soñé que revelabas, with works made in the last ten years. This series, a sort of self-portrait representing the most intimate work of Uslé, will be contextualised with a set of drawings–which work as notes or tests–and works from the nineties, with landscapes of intense colours that alternate gesture and geometry.
Juan Uslé (Santander, 1954) is one of the most internationally recognized Spanish artists and in 2002 was awarded the Premio Nacional de Artes Plásticas del Ministerio de Cultura. With more than thirty years of artistic career, he has made numerous exhibitions in institutions such as the Serralves Museum (Porto), Museum Moderner Kunst Stiftung Ludwig (Vienna), Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía (Madrid) or The New Museum of Contemporary Art (New York), among others.
