Jacob Hashimoto uses traditional kite-making techniques to create distinctive works comprised of hundreds of bamboo and paper elements strung together and suspended between parallel dowels to form fragmented and layered fields. The works take into account the spatial considerations of sculpture and the pictorial devices of painting, operating as a hybrid between what are conventionally separate disciplines. For this new body of work, Hashimoto references another artistic practice: each individual kite element portrays a graphite drawing. Values ranging from lightly hatched gray to dense black complement translucent white paper, replacing the kaleidoscope palette of cut paper collage evidenced in previous works. The subtle hand introduced by the traced and meandering pencil lines accentuates the intricate construction of the works’ foundation. The exhibition, 745 Fifth Avenue, is on view through 17 December 2011.
