His painting is framed within what is called lyrical abstraction, after minimalism. A synthetic and substantial representation of reality that surpasses the metaphorical.
Through memory and photography, which he uses as a record of his experiences, the artist proposes a evocation of his life through a deconstruction of referents all referring figurative and giving importance to the pictorial and chromatic aspects.
The 34 drawings which are now exhibited in the MACE are considered autonomous works, but they are also proofs of later large-scale paintings. They are organized by Uslé in groups called «Coal and Macular», «Syntax», «Plot», «Tapes / Freus», «Islands», «Salinas» and «Light».
The technique used is acrylic paint, sometimes with adhesive tape and papers on cardboard.
