This book explores the contemporary monochrome in Latin America. The monochrome is one of the most elusive and complex art forms of modern and contemporary art, and if we consider its origins or meaning, we soon find that the monochrome as a form contains many contradictions: the monochrome is neither a movement nor a category, neither an "ism" nor a thing. It may indicate the painting as object; the material surface of the work itself; or the denial of perspective, narrative or representation; the impossibility of interpretation; the transcendental or the absolute; or it may constitute the ultimate critique of painting.
