London: Jacob Hashimoto

 Jacob Hashimoto: Continent, 2007. Acrylic, dacron, wood, paper. 240 X 214 X 20 cm
The Saatchi Gallery and the Tate Modern are my two favourite galleries in London. Given the lack of crowds and its smaller scale, I had a better experience at the Saatchi. One could see the work properly and truly take it in. The above artwork by Jacob Hashimoto caught my eye. Like the Michael Brennand-Wood piece, this reveals textile, collage, and painting thinking. Jacob Hashimoto is an American artist who lives and works in New York and Verona.
