An unfolding dialogue in the heart of all forms of being

is capable of shifting meaning

within contemporary culture and society

The roots of conscious development descend 

into the intuitive sensibility to perceive

unity between all aspects of existence,

to preserve and reinstall sacredness

in a cyclical and spiritual perspective on life

2207_SelfPortrait_Bodhi Shola.JPG

Bodhi Shola is an artist using a feminine perspective to address sustainable evolution. Consideration is placed on the interconnection between intimacy, sacredness and nature, addressing acceptance and compassion in contemporary social culture.

Informed by her experiences and studies in contact with eastern philosophies, herbalism and meditation, the awareness towards a balanced and transversal development of society is at the core of the artist’s creation.

"Each image is a healing journey brought back to its essence"

It is through the symbolical and dream infused language of the creative medium that Bodhi Shola approaches the themes of the collective, supporting equality, biodiversity and a vision of united consciousness. The oneiric layer is transported into the factual by the means of photographic imagery that documents landscapes for preservation and hints into ceremonial practices that address social issues through the lens of kindness.

The artworks are created using products sourced from local and fair-trade artisanal businesses, supporting women employment and the adoption of organic, recyclable and/or compostable materials within the oeuvre itself.

 

Bodhi Shola’s work has been shortlisted for the 2020 Foam Paul Huf Award and exhibited between Europe and United States as part of several group exhibitions. Selected shows include Fotografiska Museum ; Armani Silos, Milan ; Red Hook Labs Gallery, NY ; Beacon Gallery, Boston ; Leica Gallery, Milan. Her work has been presented in publications including The Ny Times Magazine, Vogue Italia, The British Journal of Photography, Atmos Magazine, South China Morning Post, Dear Dave Magazine and Harpers Bazaar.
