In his work, Sodi seeks to highlight the expression of materials, embracing imperfection, unpredictability and the lack of control that comes with the autonomy of nature; a reflection of the veracity of existence. His signature paintings are created by hand layering a mixture of pigment, sawdust, glue and water on canvas, which in the drying process assumes a form of its own, creating additional cracks and textures independently. The lines between painting and sculpture begin to fade. The corporeality of the works come to life through their form, and are finished with a ripping gesture created by the artist reminiscent of Lucio Fontana’s actions to transform the pictorial space. Sodi manages to represent the human presence within works that seem to have been created by nature itself and at the same time opens the way to the depth of the painting.
The exhibition showcases an assemblage of 8 sacks and 3 golden spheres presented in the final gallery of Galeria Hilario Galguera. The burlap sacks use for the first time a gold leaf pigment and the clay spheres have a golden coating. Each of the circles of the sacks relates to the proportions of the spheres, resulting in the creation of a harmonious space, based on the spatial geometry that is generated by the dialogue between the pieces.
