Inside the soaring main gallery space of Dustin Yellin’s creative utopia Pioneer Works is Bosco Sodi’s otherworldly exhibition titled The Last Day. Created with Sodi’s signature mix of pigments and organic materials are his monumental alien landscapes, the largest of which is a site-specific 57 foot long polyptych. Conceptualized around the idea of impermanence, that all conditioned existence is in a constant state of flux the works embody this doctrine as if the deep rhythmic ridges are cracking before you. The installation is transportive and all enveloping, urging me to bring out my own alien by way of this Tod’s classic futurist ensemble. A pairing by two masters of materials, Tod’s of course is leather in the form of this laser cut metallic skirt and buttery powder blue blouse, a study of compliments and contrasts with the matte against the iridescent against the moon. Finished with this brilliant mesh headpiece sculpture by Cosma de Marinas, adding another layer of texture to elevate my extraterrestrial.
