I love Verona based galery Studio la Città. Since end of May they are showing Jacob Hashimoto's Foundatinal Work exhibition.
Jacob Hashimoto was born in Greeley, U.S.A., in 1973. He lives and works in Los Angeles.?? Jacob Hashimoto is distinctly American yet he is also involved with his Japanese heredity in a genuinely creative, rather than imitative, manner. His latest development in which, in place of cascading clouds of kites, there arise hills and waves, is as delicate as before. And, just as previously there was a sense of airiness rather than of oppression, so now there is a sense of being uplifted. The delicacy of his forms, whether they descend and envelop or expand and climb, creates as much a space for the spirit as for the body
Concurrently with Jacob Hashimoto: GAS GIANT in the Fondazione Querini Stampalia in Venice druing the 55th Venice Biennale, Jacob Hashimoto will also be holding solo shows at Forsblom gallery, Finland (17.05.2013 - 9.06.2013); Bildmuseet, Umeå, Sveden (Superabundant Atmosphere, 2.06.2013 - 13.10.2013); and at the Schauwerk Sindelfingen, Germany (Sky Columns 15.06.2013 - spring 2014).
Exhibition dates: 25th May 2013, 11.30 am - 31st August 2013
