Fiber and Paper

Quick Hits: Jacob Hashimoto

Jacob Hashimoto, an expert in structured fiber and paper, has a solo show in Santa Fe, New Mexico this month, with an immersive installation made of brightly colored, and intricately patterned handmade Japanese rice paper “kites.”

The exhibition, The Dark Isn’t The Thing To Worry About, explores the balance of the natural world, and Hashimoto’s longtime fascination with the intersections of painting and sculpture, abstraction and landscape. He creates distinctive works comprising hundreds of bamboo and paper elements strung together and suspended, forming complex layered compositions  – notes for the exhibition.
