Jacob Hashimoto: Fractured Giants
29 October 2022 - 21 January 2024
Using sculpture, painting, and installation, Jacob Hashimoto creates complex worlds from a range of modular components—bamboo-and-paper kites, model boats, and even Astro-turf-covered blocks. His layered compositions reference video games, virtual environments, and cosmology, while also being deeply rooted in art-historical traditions, notably, landscape-based abstraction, modernism and hand-craft. This exhibition is complemented by a large site-specific installation, The Fractured Giant, in Boise Art Museum’s Sculpture Court.
Jacob Hashimoto was born in Greeley, Colorado in 1973 and grew up in Walla Walla, Washington. He is a graduate of The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. He lives and works in Ossining, New York. Hashimoto’s artworks have been featured in museum exhibitions internationally, including at MOCA Pacific Design Center in Los Angeles, Museum of Contemporary Art (MACRO) in Rome, Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) in California, Aaltonen Museum of Art in Finland, and the Crow Museum of Asian Art in Texas.
