Miquel Ibarz Roca

by on October 30, 2015

Miquel Ibarz Roca, deceased Spanish artist (Barcelona, Spain 1920-1987).

“Let me paint the blue laughter of the sky and the sea.”

Ibarz, who was inspired by Cézanne’s teachings, belonged to the Barcelona Group, made up of famous painters from Catalonia, such as Miró, Tàpies and Villelia. In the 1970′s Ibarz reached the threshold of abstraction: ‘d’una abundosa i forta paleta en la qual dominen i s’oposen els blaus, els vermells i els verds…’ (from an abundant and strong palette in which blues, reds and greens predominate and contrast…). The light of the Côte d’Azur, where he had his summer studio, supported the brightness of his paintings.

As painter and graphic artist, Miquel Ibarz otherwise lived and worked in Barcelona, and kept good relations with Sala Gaspar. After a phase inspired by Cubism (portraits, nudes, still lives) he turned at first to an impasto, abstract, technique. Landscapes of the Mediterranean and still life subject matter. His paintings are characterized by colorist wholeness and a tranquil joie de vivre.
