Born in Greely, Colorado, artist Jacob Hashimoto has found a very unique niche in his art. His works are best known for using traditional Japanese methods to create large-scale “tapestries” out of thousands of hand-crafted paper and wood kites. While they are three-dimensional and could be described as sculptures, these works also invite associations with painting; the kites appear as abstract painted forms suspended in space. Hashimoto’s pieces have such a versatility in their state as either a two-dimensional plane to be viewed on a wall or a to be viewed (and sometimes displayed) as more of an installation piece that invites the beholder to explore every angle of the colorful, frozen kites.
