The work of Bosco Sodi is chameleon-like — it shifts, transforms, and adapts to its environment. The places where he creates his art dictate the outcome. A painting made in his Brooklyn studio is fundamentally different from this series made on the Greek island of Folegandros, even though similar techniques and materials are employed. Bosco Sodi soaks up his environment, unleashes it on the canvas, and gives it back to nature to dry, crack, and settle into a final form. The climate, temperature, and humidity all are variables at play. Where many artists try to control every step of the process, Bosco Sodi is the master of letting go: nature as an uncontrollable partner in his creativity, each time resulting in a unique, impossible-to-repeat outcome.
