History of Ibiza by Emily Kaufman >>

Antoni Pomar - Part Six (1978-1985)

In this sixth part in our popular series of pictures of paintings from the lifetime vocation by one of Ibiza’s most distinguished living painters, Antoni Pomar, we are now showing ten more of his superb paintings and this week there are from the years1978 to 1985.

Let me be clear about this: at every stage of his long career, Pomar has painted wonderful pictures. He’s a thrilling artist because when he performs, he doesn’t have a net to catch him if he falls because he believes strongly that the only important thing is the picture itself. That is perhaps why he has so many paintings “Without Title” and also one reason why he shires away from public statements and appearances.

Like all really great artists, Pomar’s work has continued to get better and better as he gets older. He is nothing less than a titan in the history of Ibicenco art and I stand in awe before his canvasses.

So as to keep everything together, all the pictures that we publish each week will be then added to the initial Artist on Ibiza (Fifteen) that was written by José P Ribas and published in Weekly Edition 063 on Saturday 11th May 2002.
