Matta was heavily influenced by Dalí and Yves Tanguy, and became an important figure in the evolution of Surrealism, painting dreamlike, internal “inscapes” early on and, later, intense compositions reflecting the psychic damage caused by Europe’s ongoing wars. Shifting biomorphic shapes painted or drawn in vivid colors populated Matta’s often-apocalyptic scenes, conveying confusion and angst. Additionally, Matta’s style and willing exploration of the Surrealist philosophy of “automatic composition” heavily influenced the development of the Abstract Expressionist school’s exploration of Action painting.  Roberto Matta (b. 1911-2002) was Chilean, from Santiago, Chile, and based in New York, Rome and Chile.
