This series of Mixografia prints is inspired by the artist’s practice of creating intricate installations from layers of rice paper and bamboo kites held together by fishing wire. The prints are composed of what appear to be delicate paper kites hanging by strings from atop a timeworn wooden surface, resembling the studies for installations that the artist creates in his studio.
Carefully composed by layering over 100 unique kites, Another Cautionary Tale Comes to Mind (but immediately vanishes) studies the interactions of various colors and shapes. The print focuses on building cohesive shapes out of overlapping areas of black and red, and carving out negative space between the clusters of kites. This print approaches the scale of Hashimoto’s installation work, making the project truly a feat of print-making.
