"Contents" by the Cuban artist Yasiel Alvarez Borges. Standing at width "175 cm" by height "200 cm" it is a figurative painting made of oil painting on canvas.

The pieces, which show us bundles of books tied together, or in precarious balance, or forming strange compositions, with their detailed workmanship it seems that they want to avoid thinking about the artist's hand. And closely, very closely, the neutral backgrounds where these volumes float remind us of abstractions. Faced with these works, the viewer finds himself in a permanent game of scales, lacking references he can never establish the real size of the objects.
