Bosco Sodi: Vers l’Espagne
October 8, 2020 - November 12, 2020

Honoring the lineage of Spanish artists like Joan Miró who influenced Sodi’s trajectory, “Vers L’Espagne” (“To Spain”) features freestanding clay sculptures and monochromatic paintings whose absence of color nods to the simplicity of his signature materials: clay, sawdust, and pigment. To create his richly textured paintings’ dense surfaces, Sodi mixes these materials and throws them down onto a flat canvas. As their layers dry, structures form on their own, creating splintered ravines that recall the fissured landscapes of his native Mexico. Here, he goes one step further by impressing fractal patterns onto the surface using tree branches, lending an atmospheric quality that creates, as he describes, “feelings of warmth, calmness, and repose.”
