Jacob Hashimoto uses the traditional kite-making techniques and forms to construct his three dimensional wall works. Existing as neither sculpture nor painting, Hashimoto’s compositions delicately float before the eye, mounted on an intricate network of interlaced nylon thread suspended from the wall by a line of pegs at both top and bottom.
Tied to this support are hundreds of swatches of rice paper and bamboo slivers - some collaged or painted with complex designs - dangling in abstracted motifs. 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.
