Jacob Hashimoto (b. Greeley,Co.1973) is a New-York based artist who creates space-altering installations and self-contained wall pieces by suspending colorful and delicate paper structures. His work plays with the viewer’s surrounding environments through the use of multiple layers and complex geometry. Composed and constructed along a linear grid, his artworks explore the idea of viewing nature as a digital and analogue landscape and invite the viewer to analyze the elements that define our natural environment. Recent exhibitions include MACRO- Museo d’Arte Contemporanea di Roma, Italy; Nevada Art Museum, Reno, NV; Studio la Citta, Verona, Italy; Rice University Art Gallery, Houston, TX; San Jose Museum of Art, San Jose, CA; and the Museum of Contemporary Art- Chicago.
Hashimoto’s "Gas Giant" is now on view at Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art Pacific Design Center. It is open until June 8, 2014. Gas Giant was first exhibited at Rhona Hoffman Gallery in Fall of 2012.
