JACOB HASHIMOTO´S SOLO EXHIBITION IN SANTA FE
Jacob Hashimoto´s solo exhibition The Dark Isn´t The Thing to Worry About can be seen at SITElab 11 in Santa Fe, New Mexico from October 5, 2018 – March 24, 2019.
The Colorado-born, New York-based artist's sculptures, paintings, and immersive installations often feature miniature modular "kites": hand-painted rice paper mounted on bamboo frames, each a circle, cube, or hexagon. These forms are strung together with nearly imperceptible thread to form mercurial, geometric landscapes; sometimes taking the shape of wall-mounted tapestries, and other times expanding out into enveloping architectures.
At the exhibition in Santa Fe a range of new and recent works can be seen as well as a site-specific installation. ”The exhibition, entitled The Dark Isn’t The Thing To Worry About, explores the balance of the natural world, and Hashimoto’s longtime fascination with the intersections of painting and sculpture, abstraction and landscape. […] His [Hashimoto´s] accretive works reference video games, virtual environments, and cosmology, while remaining deeply rooted in art-historical traditions, notably landscape-based abstraction, modernism, and handcraft.”
