Bosco Sodi, The Last Day

Kristian Nammack hosts a conversation with artist Bosco Sodi during the run of his exhibition at Pioneer Works in the fall of 2014. The Last Day, a site-specific 57 ft. long polyptych, was created with silver pigments and organic materials, and addresses the fast deterioration of our planet and the impermanence of life – one of the essential Buddhist doctrines: all of conditioned existence, without exception, is transient, in a constant state of flux.

Bosco Sodi (b. 1970, Mexico City) is known for his richly textured, vividly colored large-scale paintings. Sodi relishes the essential crudeness of the materials that he uses to execute his paintings. Sodi leaves many of his paintings untitled, with the intention of removing any predisposition or connection beyond the work’s immediate existence. His influences range from l’art informel--looking to artists such as Antoni Tàpies and Jean Dubuffet--to master colorists such as Willem de Kooning, Mark Rothko, and the bright hues of his native heritage.
