When forms become as much a space for the spirit as for the body.
Jacob Hashimoto is one of the most interesting young artists on the contemporary scene and is probably best known for his installations.
He simulates nature without pretending to replicate it, and he redefines Japanese screen painting with his assemblages of paper kites in undulating, interactive compositions, embodying his longtime fascination with the intersections of painting and sculpture, abstraction and landscape.
His works convey an ephemeral wonder, enthralling the viewer with their continuously shifting illusion of light, space, motion, and sense of flight.
Hashimoto's crafting by hand is central in his works, and the resulting pieces embody the rhythm of repetitive execution given by the tying and knotting involved in their making.
