Art and culture is getting more attention in Bacolod City these days. The Art Cove located at the lobby of Park Inn by Radisson Bacolod is once again abuzz with a new collection. Gilded Expressions by Jojo Vito is now on display and offers a golden experience for all guests. Jojo Vito is a renowned Bacolod artist, mask maker, business consultant, and professor.
Gilded Expressions by Jojo Vito
Park Inn by Radisson Bacolod proudly presents “Gilded Expressions”, a one-man show by renowned installation artist Jojo Vito.
Contrary to previous exhibits, “Gilded Expressions” is the first installation art exhibit hosted by Art Cove, where Jojo Vito’s sculptural pieces made of fiberglass and rendered metallic will take center stage. Moreover, this exhibit showcases purely decorative art pieces and other functional arts like huge laminated mirrors, lampshades, vases, and more, using classy natural materials like golden capiz shells and other glittery shells abundant in Negros.
Launched on March 22, 2023, which coincided with the birthday of the artist himself, “Gilded Expression” serves as a celebratory exhibit with Jojo Vito’s limited edition works. All his creations explore the intricate relationships between light, space, and texture, a series of immersive installations that invite the viewer to experience the interplay between materiality and meaning.
“Gilded connotes something beautiful, something shimmering. Something that is luxurious. All of us have the desires and dreams to own gilded things – to make our lives better. By creating these masterpieces, I want to remind people to always go for that dream.
“For me, gilded means reinvention, people should always reinvent themselves, to remain relevant. If there’s such thing as seeing things with a silver lining, or perhaps a golden lining,” the artist shared in his speech.
“We are excited to showcase Jojo Vito’s ‘Gilded Expressions’ at Park Inn by Radisson Bacolod,” said the hotel’s Rooms Division Manager, Archie Javellana. “His works are a testament to the transformative power of art, and we believe that this exhibition will provide an unforgettable experience for our guests and visitors alike.”
The event was also visited by Jojo Vito’s professor friends, local media, and co-members of the Negrense Blogging Society (Bacolod bloggers).
