Catalogue Note

"The anthropomorphic and biomorphic elements in Matta's dreamy landscapes unfold, forming sensorial sanctuaries before exploding into complete universes. This cosmos grows from the earth and the plants. These primary beings and places reappear throughout his work like erotic metaphors of a potential way of life. For Matta, the analysis of chaos, both interior and exterior, forms a necessary and imminent revolution that may possibly transform that considered as real..." 

María Berrios, "Humanized Architectures: Matta, Architect," in Matta: Centenario 11.11.11 (exhibition catalogue), Centro Cultural Palacio La Moneda, Santiago de Chile, 2011, p. 193
