【藝評】【Jorge ErnestoIbañez Vergara】
The painter, clings to the figurative support of his work, freely travels his stylistic project, without stopping in corseted disquisitions, letting the imaginary flow harmoniously with borrowed airs of reality, so that the magical surreal prevails, favoring the presence of an original work of own signs.
Scene that suggests intentionality with an air of subtle eroticism, in the midst of a scenic delirium, where two butterflies simulate carrying like a child's kite the fabric that makes an improvised mask to the nymph while standing, leaving the imagination free to feel the touch of the skin of the female lying down; the scene fragments the plane giving the sensation that it is on the sea; two little birds participate in the game, one that observes and another one that seems to have the key in the end of the thread that holds with the beak so that the scene lasts; in the background, silent witnesses a serene sea and a multicolored sky that silently accompanies the allegory.
Imaginary characters, bathed in fantasy, emulating candid harlequins, dream beings entertained in activities, simple, dispersion, leisure, fairytale characters, dream carnival, dressed in festive colors, characters that populate the painter's fantastic world.
In this work, the rich coloring in the composition, denotes a luminous conception of its purpose, which runs through harmonious schemes that flirt the decorative; where the painter with a firm line leaves evidence of his mastery of academics to establish his own pictorial concept, strengthening his attitude in the imagination for his task, ideas that he effectively solves with recreations that allow him to show off his skill in handling color and the form.
José de la Barra, navigates in the lines of the figures, induced by intentions of primordial harmonization, which enriches with the intensity of the color that prevails over expression factors; the color on and in harmonious contrasts at the same time, gives it a mystical air, maintaining a slight fantastic inclination, fresh and refreshing.
José de la Barra 著重在人物的線條，由原始和諧的意圖引發，這種意圖豐富了表情因素占主導地位的色彩強度；在同一時間的顏色和和諧的對比，給它一個神秘的空氣，保持輕微的夢幻般的傾向，清新爽快。
