Artist Iván Contreras Brunet, born in Santiago de Chile in 1927 (he lives in Paris since the 1950s), is exhibiting at the MACBA a series of artworks in which our vision is trapped between the first and second levels.

Carres blancs, by Iván Contreras Brunet (1958)
Technique: acrylic on 4-mm-plexiglass
Most paintings on display hold geometric structures: a kind of architecture which, sometimes, produces a certain movement.
Degradé horizontal cinétique, by Iván Contreras Brunet (1972)
Materials: net, acrylic and wood

Blanco y negro, by Iván Contreras Brunet (1958)
Technique: acrylic on three layers of 4-mm-plexiglass
Geometric art to be explored up-close, a 3D optic illusion. Works that can be related to the works of Julio Le ParcManuel Espinosa and Marta Boto
