Jacob Hashimoto simulates nature without purporting to replicate it. Based in New York and of Japanese decent, Hashimoto redefines Japanese screen painting with his assemblages of paper “kites” in undulating, interactive compositions. Jacob is represented by Studio La Citta, Rhona Hoffman Gallery, Galerie Forsblom and Mary Boone Gallery.

Hashimoto’s artwork embodies his longtime fascination with the intersections of painting and sculpture, abstraction and landscape. Each work is comprised of hundreds of small bamboo and paper kite-like elements. These kite elements are strung together in chains, and layers of these chains are stretched taut between short dowels that project from wall-mounted brackets, creating a densely layered and fragmented tapestry of image or pattern.

The elements forming these tapestries are a solid color of paper, or a complex, collaged pattern of multicolored cut paper. While the individual components remain more or less abstract, overall, clusters of pattern, stripes, or waves of color are formed, giving the works a pictorial quality that suggests organic forms, vistas, scrolling video games, or even board games. Through this unique process Hashimoto’s works convey an ephemeral wonder, entrancing the viewer with their continuously shifting illusion of light, space, motion, and sense of flight. Hashimoto’s working method is very open-ended, allowing him to sample art-historical references, icons of the every-day, and mismatched narratives within each composition.

“Jacob Hashimoto est né en 1973 aux Etats-Unis. Il vit et travaille entre New York et Verone, Italie.
Hashimoto réinterprète la peinture japonaise sur paravent en utilisant les techniques traditionnelles de fabrication de cerf volant pour composer ses installations murales tridimensionnelles à base de papier de riz, de suspensions de bambous et de ficelles. Son œuvre à pour origine une fascination de longue date pour la peinture et la sculpture, l’abstraction et le paysage s’inscrivant ainsi à l’intersection de ces disciplines. En effet, ni peinture, ni sculpture, les compositions de Hashimoto flottent délicatement devant les yeux, en créant des illusions de lumière, d’espace et de mouvement.”

Jacob Hashimoto é um artista visual, nascido em 1973 no Colorado, EUA e reside em NY.
Ele cria estruturas-objetos tridimencionais compostas de várias miniaturas todas confeccionados com papel arroz, bambu. Algumas com fundo branco e outras com aplicações, tudo suspenso e unido por fios de pesca. Umas circulares, outras exagonais, outras ovais.
Um trabalho delicado, formando cascatas, nuvens, lindo, lindo. Apesar de ser americano, podemos ver a influência da herança oriental no seu trabalho.
