Bosco Sodi, Yūgen
Produced on the occasion of Yūgen - Bosco Sodi’s first exhibition with Blain|Southern - this publication comprehensively details all the exhibited works with over 100 full colour plates and installation images.
Speaking of the volcanic rock sculptures and large-scale impasto paintings, ArtForum said they ‘betray a sense of time and process’. This is expanded upon in the publication in an essay by science writer and broadcaster Philip Ball, who says of Sodi’s work;
‘Part of the compelling visual power of these works is the very notion that human artistry can produce something that looks so natural. But mimicry wouldn’t by itself explain the aesthetic appeal of the surfaces….It’s the interplay between chance and determinism that creates so lively and rich an impression.’
