The Vertigo of Eros
Matta was always interested in a type of outer space abstraction. Many of his works from the 1940s, like this one, contain fantastic, robot-like devices which seem engaged in some indefinable conflict through abstract means. It hints at the surrealist practice of automatism (painting without conscious thought) with its random, slashing lines of color.
