Interview with Bosco Sodi at Blain|Southern
Interview: Bosco Sodi
Bosco Sodi: Yugen
20 April - 12 June 2016
Born in Mexico City in 1970, Bosco Sodi is known for his richly textured, highly physical and vividly coloured large-scale paintings, made from crude raw materials, pigments and sawdust, plastered on to canvases with his hands and left to dry and crack in the sun. Having spent time in Japan, he draws from the aesthetic philosophy of wabi-sabi, embracing imperfection and revering natural authenticity above all.
Focusing on material exploration, the creative gesture, and the profound spiritual connection between the artist and his work, Sodi invites his audience to allow their minds and souls to go on a journey with his works. With his glazed, golden rocks, Sodi enjoys taking the natural objects out of context and presenting them in a gallery as precious objects of desire.
Sodi speaks to Studio International about his philosophies, his creative processes and his foundation in Oaxaca, offering residencies for international artists.
