Although influenced by ideas ranging from philosophy to multiculturalism, Juan Uslé’s lyrical abstract works do not aim to be in any way representational, rather they convey his personal vision of the world, which is poetic rather than narrative. His paintings are not a window on the world but are an area of dialogue, which he probes and explores. Many of his paintings lead the viewer into a labyrinthine space in which Uslé’s precise articulation seems to point in a specific direction while still, paradoxically, leaving the way open to the viewer’s interpretation.
