Jacob Hashimoto is a New York based installation artist, who creates light three-dimensional structures out of thousands of hand crafted paper and wood kites.
Hashimoto draws from a variety of art-historical influences, which explore the dialogue of Western painting. Each composition can be defined as a landscape abstraction referencing everything from American post-war abstraction, to 70’s pattern design, hard-edged painting and postmodern 90’s slacker painting.
As visitors walk around, under and through the sculpture they encounter the texture, lighting and angle of the work which shifts and changes to the individual as they explore its architecture from their own perspective, creating an intensely personal experience. Hashimoto’s work creates a sculptural environment conveying a sense of wonder and playfulness.
