Roberto Matta (Chilean-born French Surrealist/Abstract Expressionist Painter, ca.1912-2002) is without a doubt one of the most important 20th century Latin American artists, who along with Dali, Miro, Max Ernst, Yves Tanguy, Man Ray, and Magritte, exercised a great influence on American Surrealism. His works express the influence of the collective subconscious icons, south american & popular culture, and psycho-sexuality. Their undeniable beauty keeps the eye engaged in visual details even as the mind ponders these totems and taboos. These prints also reveal Matta's true genius as a printmaker, incorporating a variety of print technique that produces a final image that is complex, rich and mysteriously beautiful.
