The Bronx Museum of the Arts will unveil a new large-scale painting created by Mexican artist Bosco Sodi for the Museum’s exhibition Pangaea. The title of both the new work and the exhibition, Pangaea, refers to the single landmass that existed 250 million years ago before the earth’s present-day continents formed. The six-panel, 13’ x 40’ painting at the centerpiece of the exhibition is an accumulation of scorched red-orange pigment and thick materials that form encrusted surfaces reminiscent of a volcanic landscape. http://www.lavitrina.com/artman/publish/article_683.shtml
