Matecki’s first solo show in Zacheta – National Gallery of Art in Warsaw (curated by Maria Rubersz & Wojciech Kozłowski) was at the same time his biggest exhibition in a public art institution so far. Its center – a monumental installation – was made up with a few hundred drawings based on reproductions of (more or less) famous paintings found on the Internet. The intense process of accumulating images was then juxtaposed with Matecki’s newest abstract works – a result of a far-reaching, conscientious reduction of the painterly medium. The paintings were created based on routine i.e. using an automated process of covering the canvas with paint using a scraper – simple and basic qualities like color, gesture, texture, rhythm and shape are what constitutes them. The monumental in its size painting (240 x 360 cm) which crowned the show was made just before its opening, on site. All of this was supplemented by an additional program of tours and workshop with not only Matecki but other invited artists: Tomasz Ciecierski, Paweł Susid and Tymek Borowski.
