Jacob Hashimoto's new solo exhibition will open this June at Makasiini Contemporary. The exhibition will occupy the whole gallery space with his distinguished wall works and a new series of prints.
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. Hashimoto’s materially light and airy art explores the boundary between sculpture and painting, along with questions of abstraction and figuration.
