Bosco Sodi is a Mexican contemporary artist, now based in New York, whose monochrome sculptures and paintings are composed of pure pigment mixed with sawdust, wood pulp, natural fibers, and glue. He applies the natural pigments, layer by layer, to large wooden slabs. As the pieces dry, the surfaces crack, calling to mind geological phenomena like lava and scorched earth.
