Artists

Juan Uslé

Juan Uslé, born 1954 in Santander, Spain, has developed a rich painterly oeuvre that operates in the space between pure abstraction and emotionally intense subjective expression. Since the early 1980’s he sought to create paintings informed – on a meta-narrative level – by his personal experience, while also reflecting the fundamental rules of his pictorial vocabulary. To date, his most comprehensive series of paintings called Soñé que revelabas (I dreamed that you revealed) distils the poetic-emotional conceptualism that permeates Uslé’s visual universe down to its essence; the structural conditions of painting and the pictorial process. Each brushstroke is both the indexical image of the painterly gesture and the direct physical representation of the artist’s relationship to his work.

Juan Uslé participated in the 51st Venice Biennale (2005) and exhibited at Documenta 9 in Kassel (1992). In 2002, he was awarded Spain’s national art prize. His painting and photography has been presented in numerous individual exhibitions in the US and Europe, including Centro Galego de Arte Contemporánea, Santiago de Compostela (2014), Kunstmuseum Bonn (2014), Museu d’Art Modern i Contemporani de Palma (2010), Fundación Bancaja, Valencia (2008), Centro de Arte Contemporáneo de Málaga (2007), and “la Caixa” Foundation, Barcelona (2006). He was also in numerous group exhibitions including Fundación Federico García Lorca, Huerta de San Vicente, Granada (2015/16), Museo de Albacete (2015), Centro Andaluz de Arte Contemporáneo, Sevilla (2015), Centro de Arte Contemporáneo Málaga (2015), Fondazione Giorgio Cini, Venice (2015), CentroCentro Cibeles, Madrid (2015), Patio Herreriano – Museo de Arte Contemporáneo Español, Valladolid (2014), Guggenheim Museum Bilbao (2013/14), Centro Galego de Arte Contemporánea, Santiago de Compostela (2013), Museo Reina Sofía (2013), Fundación Botín, Santander (2011), the Moscow Museum of Modern Art (2011), Kunsthalle Emden (2009), Museo de Arte Contemporánea de Vigo (2008), and Musée d’Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean, Luxembourg (2008). His work is part of various public collections, including Museo Reina Sofía, “la Caixa” Foundation, Barcelona, Museum Boijmans van Beuningen, MUMOK, Vienna, MIGROS, Zurich, Musée d’Art Moderne, Luxembourg, Pinakothek der Moderne, Staatsgalerie Stuttgart, Moderna Museet, New York Public Library, Serralves Museum, Museum Morsbroich, Sammlung Goetz, Munich, Marugame Hirai Museum, Museo de Bellas Artes de Santander, and Saatchi Collection. Juan Uslé lives and works in New York City and Saro in Cantabria, Spain.

Biography and Concept

Juan Uslé, born 1954 in Santander, Spain, has developed a rich painterly oeuvre that operates in the space between pure abstraction and emotionally intense subjective expression. Since the early 1980’s he sought to create paintings informed – on a meta-narrative level – by his personal experience, while also reflecting the fundamental rules of his pictorial vocabulary. To date, his most comprehensive series of paintings called Soñé que revelabas (I dreamed that you revealed) distils the poetic-emotional conceptualism that permeates Uslé’s visual universe down to its essence; the structural conditions of painting and the pictorial process. Each brushstroke is both the indexical image of the painterly gesture and the direct physical representation of the artist’s relationship to his work.

Juan Uslé participated in the 51st Venice Biennale (2005) and exhibited at Documenta 9 in Kassel (1992). In 2002, he was awarded Spain’s national art prize. His painting and photography has been presented in numerous individual exhibitions in the US and Europe, including Centro Galego de Arte Contemporánea, Santiago de Compostela (2014), Kunstmuseum Bonn (2014), Museu d’Art Modern i Contemporani de Palma (2010), Fundación Bancaja, Valencia (2008), Centro de Arte Contemporáneo de Málaga (2007), and “la Caixa” Foundation, Barcelona (2006). He was also in numerous group exhibitions including Fundación Federico García Lorca, Huerta de San Vicente, Granada (2015/16), Museo de Albacete (2015), Centro Andaluz de Arte Contemporáneo, Sevilla (2015), Centro de Arte Contemporáneo Málaga (2015), Fondazione Giorgio Cini, Venice (2015), CentroCentro Cibeles, Madrid (2015), Patio Herreriano – Museo de Arte Contemporáneo Español, Valladolid (2014), Guggenheim Museum Bilbao (2013/14), Centro Galego de Arte Contemporánea, Santiago de Compostela (2013), Museo Reina Sofía (2013), Fundación Botín, Santander (2011), the Moscow Museum of Modern Art (2011), Kunsthalle Emden (2009), Museo de Arte Contemporánea de Vigo (2008), and Musée d’Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean, Luxembourg (2008). His work is part of various public collections, including Museo Reina Sofía, “la Caixa” Foundation, Barcelona, Museum Boijmans van Beuningen, MUMOK, Vienna, MIGROS, Zurich, Musée d’Art Moderne, Luxembourg, Pinakothek der Moderne, Staatsgalerie Stuttgart, Moderna Museet, New York Public Library, Serralves Museum, Museum Morsbroich, Sammlung Goetz, Munich, Marugame Hirai Museum, Museo de Bellas Artes de Santander, and Saatchi Collection. Juan Uslé lives and works in New York City and Saro in Cantabria, Spain.
