Bold, richly textured works that burst with colour and materiality, Bosco Sodi’s visual language transcends conceptual barriers. His paintings, or sculptural objects as the artist himself calls them, appear to be carved from the earth itself.
The dense materiality of his work is made by using a combination of raw, monochrome pigments mixed with sawdust, pulp, natural fibres, and glue that are combined layer after layer and allowed to dry, crack, and evolve.
The exhibition at Axel Vervoordt Gallery is presented in two gallery locations at Kanaal to provide a comprehensive survey into the variety of Sodi’s practice. A series of recent works is presented in the Patio Gallery, in which the space’s natural light creates a unique dynamic, bringing to life the natural, organic feel of the work.
