Matilde Pérez

Audacity has been the seal of the life of Matilde Perez, a visual artist who made her own way and opened new fields in the twentieth century Chilean art.  Being a woman ina a man’s world, she transgressed  many  conventions of her time to dedicate her life to art, exploring the pictorial language.

Her works are paintings, collages, acrylic or metallic sculptures that  realize her ceaseless experimentation with the possibilities of the creation of  virtual movement through optical illusion and also, the creation of   real movement through electricity, element that she incorporated in her  works from 1970.
