The gallery TAT ART BARCELONA presents for the next edition of the Barcelona Gallery Weekend an individual exhibition by the artist Vicky Uslé (Santander, 1981).
The exhibition, which revolves around the concepts skin, time and substance, will be the first exhibition that the gallery dedicates to the artist, which is the latest addition to the list of artists represented by TAT ART.
The exhibition will bring together the most recent work produced by Vicky, a constant journey through the divergences and codes of painting understood as vivid language, place of experience, desire and narration.
Vicky Uslé investigates the possibilities of abstraction and, through the superposition of brushstrokes, forms, colors and perspectives, forms a fabric of relations practically infinite not only of plastic but also of poetic meditation of color. Thus, such meditation could connect the viewer with the world of ideas, linguistics or the spider web of information.
Their works harbor a certain tension between organicism and geometry, consistency and lightness, and there is always in them a principle of movement that confers them instability, although there is also a vision of determination. Uslé’s abstractions function as visual, perceptual, autonomous and recreational panoramas or horizons. In many of her paintings the artist seems to be related to Oriental calligraphy, sweeps and shades of the screen and the curtain, the paper or the introspective atmosphere of the Japanese house, all in a progressive crescendo and decrescendo of crisscrosses that form orders and relations.
Vicky Uslé uses oil and acrylic to investigate the possibilities and results that their combinations produce with a whole poetics of the material.
Vicky Uslé lives and works between Cantabria and New York. He has exhibited individually in cities of Europe and the United States. His work is part of collections such as the European Bank Collection, Reina Sofía Museum, Caja Madrid Collection, Santander Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Pamplona Museum, Malaga Contemporary Art Center or Simon de Pury Phillips Art Collection in NY. She has been awarded the IV Acquisition Prize Cañada Blanch Foundation and the Navacerrada Collection Acquisition Prize.
