Hakama’s most recent works in bamboo charcoal are sculptural abstractions with an emphasis on materiality- the Minimalist results of a complex and meticulous process. These works were first exhibited alongside Hakama’s paper collages and paintings at Ginza’s Medel Gallery in Tokyo Japan in 2018. His next shows will be at Yokaan Gallery in Kyoto (09.17) and at the Tenri Cultural Institute in New York City (11.15)
