University in Rome, she studied aesthetics with Professor Perniola and obtained a master’s degree in Aesthetics and Museum Communication at Tor Vergata University in Rome.

Matta’s research concentrates on space and light. In her last paintings, she focuses on empty interiors where human presence is just perceived but not represented. Despite the absence of people and of any kind of activity, these spaces are actually far from being desolate, being pervaded by a sense of familiarity and of human narrative. Matta uses a limited palette, allowing her paint to drip and smudge in certain areas of the canvas’ surface. The overall effect is a compelling movement that pulls the viewer into the canvas
Matta has held solo exhibitions in Paris, Rome, Verona, Cosenza and Catania. She has also been the recipient of finalist awards in Los Angeles and Venice.
