Roberto Matta | Selected Etchings

February 1 - 24, 2018 

First Thursday Opening Reception: February 2, 2018, 6-8pm.

Perhaps Chile’s best known artist, Matta was trained as an architect.  Thanks to a short stint in the Merchant Marine, he landed in Europe.Through Le Corbusier he came to know Garcia Lorca, Salvador Dali and Andre Breton, which in turn led him to join the Surrealist movement in 1937 (but he was later expelled in 1947).  His time in Madrid, London, Paris, and Scandinavia during the 1930s connected him to Gropius, Moholy-Nagy, Picasso, Marcel Duchamp, Gordon Ford, Yves Tanguy and Alvar Aalto.  After moving to New York in 1939, his images reflect a blend of the Surrealist landscape of the subconscious and the Action Painting of the Abstract Expressionist school.  The human form reappeared in works of the 1940s combined with organic and symbiotic relationships with machines.  Matta was a strong colorist as both painter and printmaker.  His images also reflect a response to international political events, whether in Spain, Germany, or Vietnam.
