A Thousand Li of Rivers and Mountains
Bosco Sodi

SC / 56 pages / 21,5 × 31,5 cm

Bright, primary colours leave no one untouched. They speak for themselves. They shine. They have a resonance that connects. Nearly all of us have memories of them — be they specific or atmospheric. For Bosco Sodi, they transmit memories of his childhood in Mexico: the colour turquoise is his mother's favourite colour; it's a reminder of the lagoons, waterfalls, and cenotes or cavescontaining groundwater. (Boris Vervoordt)

Bosco Sodi (°1970, Mexico City) is known for his richly textured, vividly colored large-scale paintings. Sodi has discovered an emotive power within the essential crudeness of the materials that he uses to execute his paintings. Focusing on material exploration, the creative gesture, and the spiritual connection between the artist and his work, Sodi seeks to transcend conceptual barriers. 

This book is the second in an on-going series that collects a few years of Axel Vervoordt gallery exhibitions to offer an anthologised snapshot of the work they've been pursuing.
