McNamara Art Projects

Taka Ishii Gallery in cooperation with McNamara Art Projects is pleased to present “HOTEL PARAISO”, Tomoo Gokita’s first solo exhibition in Hong Kong featuring new paintings at McNamara Art Projects fromJanuary 12 to February 10.

This exhibition features paintings of the colorful people who gather at an imaginary place called “HOTEL PARAISO”. Although Gokita visited an actual hotel of the same name while in Mexico, the HOTEL PARAISO of his new paintings is fictional and, like “paradise”, can be located neither in space nor time. HOTEL PARAISO is a constructed image comprising the artist’s fragmentary memories of his trip to Mexico and his childhood introduction to the word “Paraiso” through Haruomi Hosono’s 1978 album of the same name. The extraordinary space of the hotel functions as a stage for narratives concerning the painted characters’ emotions and secrets. The vividly depicted scenes and meticulously rendered backgrounds, organic forms, and other pictorial elements enhance the works’ depth and appeal.
