These three Férridos mundos by Ybáñez constitute a good exponent of his way of doing and feeling: his handling of surrealistic and expressionist elements was apparently always directed towards warm and subjective effusion, but at the same time concealed his ability for self-control, critical reflection and meditation on art. Even on paper, where artists usually feel most free and are most given to experimentation, Ybáñez’s compositional effort can be appreciated, as well as the order and distribution with which he arranges, almost like a classicist, the forms and colours, the sense of rhythm, the guidelines governing the interlinking of each of the figures. This reflexive holding back, not perceptible by a superficial glance, is what makes his pictorial universe viable and harmonious. It is a universe in tension, although discreetly constrained or, what is the same thing, cleverly devised.
