This East Coast installation serves as a counterpoint to Hashimoto's immense Gas Giant that opened at MOCA Pacific Design Center in Los Angeles in March 2014. Comprised of thousands of the artist's signature bamboo and paper "kites" intricately strung together, Gas Giant offered the viewer an immersive, shifting, free-floating arena to explore. 

With Skyfarm Fortress, Hashimoto similarly creates a wall to wall, floor to ceiling environment, but anchors the three dimensional sculpture with a complex system of suspended open cubes that coalesce from the alignment of solid black square kites. This architechtural grid--Brutalism at its more ethereal--both visually supports and penetrates a band of overlapping planes of multi-colored collaged elements.

Above this dynamic substructure is a canopy of white elliptical kites. Cloud-like, translucent, out of reach, and constantly rippling from air currents, this Sky contrasts with the perceived rigidity of the Fortress below. From balletic components, Hashimoto creates a tense narrative of abstract form and composition. 

The gallery is open Tuesday-Saturday, 10:00AM-6:00PM.
