Bosco Sodi (b. 1970, Mexico City) is known for his richly textured and colored large-scale paintings that transcend the all conceptual barriers. The exhibition at Axel Vervoordt gallery, articulated in two different venues, offers a survey through the last production of the Mexican artist. Among the pillars and the voids of the formal silos of the Escher Gallery, eight big cubes of fired clay organize differently the space modulating the architectural concept to the essentiality. Another massive intervention, Muro the first public art intervention of the artist conceived in 2017 on the occasion of the Washington Square Park it’s an ensemble of 160 removable clay timbers fired by hands with help of Oaxaca craftsmen that. The wall will keep transforming thanks the collaboration of the public who can take or buy each singular brick, during the opening time ( from 2pm to 7pm), contributing in this way to the collective concept of the project crucially. In the so called Patio Gallery, where the existence of the natural light is a key element for the drawing the space, a series of the recent Bosco Sodi paintings, defined by himself as sculptural objects, shows the profound process based aesthetic methodology by overlap glue, pigment and paint.
