Sodi's paintings and sculptures combine preindustrial minimalist and arte povera traditions with elements of Oaxacan and Japanese culture. He has described his creative process as "controlled chaos" that makes "something completely unrepeatable and unique." In his most celebrated body of work, the artist mixes raw pigment with sawdust, wood, pulp, and natural fibers to create the dense surfaces of monochrome paintings. As the layers of material dry, fissured "landscapes" form without the guidance or intervention of the artist.
