Tomoo Gokita’s first North American museum exhibition, Dallas Contemporary is presenting “Get Down” through August 22. Featuring the artist’s new large-scale paintings and other works made during the pandemic, which are being shown for the first time, the exhibition marks a new direction for Gokita: his signature grayscale creations have been replaced with a palette of pastels. Choosing to ignore the questions racing through his mind during isolation (like “What will become of humanity?”) Gokita opted to just paint, instead—which yielded a series of works utilizing influences like Neo-Expressionism and Post-War German Figuration to create images employing familiar motifs and imagery, ranging from pin-up models to familial portraiture.
