Los Angeles-based Scoli Acosta transforms images and objects gleaned from daily life, literature, mass culture, and dreams. Acosta’s work is characterized by what he describes as an “aesthetics of resourcefulness”—the artist favors humble materials, economic gestures, and transparency with respect to craft. His installations emerge as poetic constellations that reveal traces of his research and production processes, as well as his movements through various landscapes.
