Vicente Ferrer Guasch - Part Three

Today we will feature yet another ten dazzling pictures from the lifetime’s work of paintings by the prominent artist of Ibiza, Vicente Ferrer Guasch.

I refer to the vocation of Ferrer Guasch as dazzling, simply because, in the vast majority of his brilliant paintings there is absolutely no sign whatsoever of any form of life. His work gives the impression that it was painted and finished during the siesta time at the height of the Ibiza midday sun when sensible folk are indoors. In each painting there is no evidence of men, women, children, cats, dogs, birds and even the insects are hiding from the intense heat and the radiant glare of that huge ball of yellow fire in the clear blue sky over the Mediterranean.

These ten pictures along with the ten that we published a fortnight ago of Vicente Ferrer Guasch exceptional paintings will be added with details when possible to the Artists on Ibiza (Twenty-Two) article by José P Ribas, which initially appeared in Weekly Edition 077 Saturday 17th August 2002.
