Spanish term or phrase: antiretiniano
This comes from an interview with an artist where he talks about minimalist American artists and where minimalism was coming from. Is it anti-retinal?? Help!

The full context is as follows
"Era impresionante ver aquellas obras que utilizaban el espacio como materia y como había artistas que eran capaces de dar cuenta de lo invisible mediante un sistema antiretiniano que, a la vez, tenía una gran fisicidad."
