Stunning Art Made from Colored Threads

Posted on December 27, 2012

Originally from Mexico City, Gabriel Dawe creates site-specific installations that explore the connection between fashion and architecture. His work is focused on the exploration of textiles, aiming to examine the complicated construction of gender and identity in his native Mexico and attempting to subvert the notions of masculinity and machismo prevalent in the present day. There is a surreal quality to Dawe's work - from a distance you don't see the threads, just these vibrating planes of translucent, yet saturated color. The artwork seems to come to life as one walks around it, and different colors blend into each other, creating a sort of interactive prism effect which is haunting in its simplicity.
