Jacob Hashimoto at Makasiini Contemporary


June 4, 2021

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.
