Jacob Hashimoto’s new installation with hundreds of small bamboos and paper kite elements will demonstrate and show once again, the beauty and talent of the artist’s intersections of painting and sculpture. Thanks to a bamboo frame and small kite elements, Hashimoto suspends his creations between parallel dowels to form fragmented and layered fields. Distinctive and interactive compositions are then bound in a real undulating cascade similar to a cloud-shaped sculpure. The work shifts and changes throught the visitor’s walkaround creating a sense of wonder and playfulness.
Jacob Hashimoto, NYC based but with Japanese descendants has exhibited in numerous museums, public institutions and galleries in the US and Europe. Ronchni Gallery of London will host this exhibit from june the 29th till August the 28th 2012; a summer must see.www.ronchinigallery.com
