Gas Giant By Jacob Hashimoto
- Annika Wittrock
Colorado-born artist Jacob Hashimoto creates massive space-altering installations with thousands of thin paper sheets. Influenced by ample sources from sacred architecture to post-war abstract painting, Hashimoto expands painting and collage strategies. His work is an ongoing exploration of abstraction and landscape through color, repetition and association. Combined together, they result in the infinite layers of complexity that characterize his work. Gas Giant was exhibited in Venice at Fondazione Querini Stampalia, in Chicago at Rhona Hoffman Gallery and at MOCA Pacific Design Center.
