Bosco Sodi :YŪGEN at Blain Southern

Blain|Southern’s first exhibition with Bosco Sodi features new volcanic rock sculptures and large-scale impasto paintings made with layers of pure pigment, water, glue and natural fibres. Sodi’s relationship with crude raw materials and the constituent elements of nature draws from wabi-sabi, a Japanese aesthetic philosophy that embraces imperfection and reveres natural authenticity above all.
