Spanish term or phrase: ensombrecimiento contrapicado de luces frías
This is from a description of an installation by a contemporary Argentine artist:

Las escenas, densificadas por el ensombrecimiento contrapicado de luces frías, y por la extrañeza que supone el movimiento orgánico de papeles monocromáticos acumulados como base, nos sitúan ante un posible momento crítico: asumimos que estamos atrapados en el momento exacto en el que dichos niños parecieran ser atacados.

ominous because of the shadows of cold light?? I understand contrapicado to be lit from below...not sure, one, if that is correct, and, two, how to make sense of it in this phrase

Thanks
