ARTIST / Artist
Bosco Sodi is known for his use of raw, natural materials to create large-scale textured paintings and objects. Sodi has discovered an emotive power within the essential simplicity of his materials and the vivid pigments he sources. Sodi has described his creative process as a “controlled chaos” that makes “something that is completely un-repeatable.” Focusing on material exploration, the creative gesture, and the spiritual connection between the artist and his work, Sodi seeks to transcend conceptual barriers. His works become memories and relics symbolic of the artist’s conversation with the raw material that brought them into creation.
Sodi mixes raw pigment with sawdust, wood, pulp, natural fibers, and glue to create the dense surfaces of the monochrome paintings. As the layers of material dry, structures form without the guidance or intervention of the artist. These fissured ‘landscapes’ are both products of the artist’s creative process and the unpredictable and chance in nature.
