1. Prisma I and Prisma II are the last pieces of Pop Art that Teresa Burga made before going to Chicago in 1969. Some authors consider them as transitional pieces in Burga’s work, since they link the forms and themes from Pop painting, with a production method that goes without the intervention of the artist’s hand. Perhaps more interesting is the fact that both objects were made with the intention of being manipulated by the spectator: their modular structure invites the spectator to interact with them in the exhibition space, rotating and flipping them around.

2. In Zoo, Moncloa constructs a rectangular composition that reveals a geometric entity whose configuration is subject to changing forms that use different kinds of angles. Here he manages to introduce both serenity and dynamism to his work He also uses contrasting colors and places them in dialogue with an enigmatic and dominant pink. This painting was included in Moncloa’s first exhibition in Paris in 1956. French criticism located Moncloa within the tradition of Auguste Herbin, while also praising the peculiarity of the artist’s deployment of strong colors that literally leap out towards the viewer.
