This artist is made of paintings trying to astonish us, first of all, by the feelings of optimism and generosity that she reveals, which are manifest in the capacity for invention of a cornucopia of abstract images, and secondly, in security and determination. It belongs to a tradition that insists on the poetic potential of abstraction, which gives painting, in the best cases, the capacity to be a form of knowledge in itself, without needing to claim for its functionality. Her inspiration was translated also into our first collection, her work shows us an idea that should not be previously conceived, a changing world that projects its reflection in the environment and nature.
In Onesixone.com we are proud of showing in our handbags the pieces of arts developed by some of the most important contemporary artists nowadays, and Vicky Uslé is one of them with art exhibitions of prestige like the one in Uhuru Showroom.
