Biography

Juan Dolhare

Juan Dolhare (1978) is a painter from Buenos Aires, Argentina. He utilizes composition, color, and juxtaposition to explore public, political, and religious themes. Many of his works use symbolism to represent pressing societal issues.

Dolhare was the first-ever graduate of the National University of the Arts (UNA) in Buenos Aires, formerly known as the highly-recognized Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes. He has participated in numerous collective and solo shows in Argentina and the United States. In 2015, Dolhare was invited by the prestigious Centro Cultural Recoleta in Buenos Aires to have a solo show curated by Rodrigo Alonso, curator for the Argentinian Pavilion at the 54th Venice Biennale and one of Latin America’s most influential curators. More recently in 2018, Dolhare was invited to have a solo exhibition at Galería Revolver in Buenos Aires, and he will be completing an artist residency at the McColl Center for Art + Innovation in Charlotte, NC.  His work can be found in private collections in Argentina, Spain, Nigeria, Scotland, and the United States. Dolhare has been serving as a faculty member of UNA teaching drawing and painting since 2006.


The line. The incomplete object. The useless mechanism.

Everything can be adrift. Everything can be a question.

I work in a system of suspended images that speculates what lies ahead. My space is an ambiguous one, with a diffused temporality.

I attempt to empty the meaning and abandon the inherent nature of objects; the processes; the experience of the object itself; and the knowledge of it.

I think in a fossil world of objects, without people.
