The monumental, richly pigmented works of Bosco Sodi are celebrations of pure color. He creates his dense monochromes using raw pigment mixed with sawdust, wood pulp, natural fibers, and glue, which he applies, layer by layer, to large wooden slabs. As the pieces dry, the surfaces crack, calling to mind geological phenomena like lava and scorched earth. Sodi prizes natural pigments, using materials such as lapis lazuli, indigo, carbon, and soot to make his paintings vibrate with organic energy. According to Sodi, the finished pieces are even further tied to the earth by aspects such as the altitude and humidity of where they were made. Despite their daunting size, each piece is created, the artist has said, in one “continuous action, like a performance.”
