La Galeria Carles Taché is pleased to announce the opening of a solo show by artist of the gallery Bosco Sodi. Bosco Sodi (Mexico DF, 1970) embodies the renovation of the moralistic Mexican tradition. The mater, its consistency and its destruction are the props of a creative process that is, almost in parallel, an organic process of disappearance. The monochrome has become a constant in Sodi’s work and it invites the viewer to project a closer look and to think about contemporary derivations of painting.
The artist constantly works in a delocalized way even having his main studio in Brooklyn. Furthermore, the employed materials on the creation of the works are usually those o ered by each place. This gesture, minimal but signi cant, does not respond to practical neither logistical intentions but is, rather, the rst of the pre-pictorial gestures of someone who feels a strong bond with the land and who works from that feeling. Sodi’s mixtures are kind of disembodied masses mainly based on pigments and organic materials.
From that point, the force that triggers Bosco Sodi’s artistic practice is probably the curiosity to experiment ( rst in a material sense) with the elements disposed on the surface of the canvas. In this initial phase of the process, one could say that artist interacts with the natural development of the reactive process of the mixture. The natural e ciency of the organic does not exactly exempt the artist from his participation but, in some way, makes him become an observer. Obviously an involved observer who intuitively “conducts” a process that brings all sorts of reactions and accidents – opportunities, after all, for those who marvel themselves with the unpredictable and even take advantage of it-.
Bosco Sodi lives and works in New York, where he arrived after having lived in Paris, Berlin and Barcelona. He has exhibited individually in institutions such as the Bronx Museum (New York), the IVAM (Valencia) or the Museum of National Art (Mexico). His work is in international collections such as Jumex, De La Cruz or Museum of Modern Art of Gunma (Japan).
