Gabriel Dawe’s latest Plexus site-specific installation sees the artist accumulate thousands of strands of sewing threads, solidifying space in a vibrant, tangible spectrum of colour. The absolute precision of its making allows the viewer to perceive it from all manner of angles with the effect being somewhere between “material and the immaterial.”
Through the materials he uses, the artist returns to his childhood frustration at his Mexican heritage, the threads, and more specifically embroidery, symbolising the purported machismo mentality, the cultural roles of the genders, and a “complicated network between ideas and people.” The overall effect is both sculpturally architectural and very, very beautiful.
The Density of Light will be on show at Gallery Lot 10 until June 9.
