Oil paints on panels (1976)

With this piece, the artist wanted to help humanise an environment that is marked by industry and technology. His characters are reproduced with photographic precision. The panels are placed in diamond shapes in order to break the monotony of the rectangular wall. The images are typical of Pol Mara’s work: the beautiful young girl laughing, timid or provocative nudity, horses, sensuality, the “Make love, not war” atmosphere. The painting radiates the hectic pace of our time with a multitude of varied images and impressions which are characteristic of a modern metropolis. In “Thema’s” the artist is rather sober in his compositions, although we can still clearly recognise his style.
