I’m about done with winter now. I know it’s only November but here on the West Coast, the temperatures have fallen (ok -6C but still!) and it actually snowed over the weekend (not much to shut down anything but this is Vancouver). Also, it doesn’t help with the dreary gray environment just make it ‘blah!’.
Here Gabriel constructs his installation design with gütermann thread, wood and nails attached at either end to blocks of wood, thus creating this unique and gorgeous artwork. It’s almost like peering through layers of a rainbow or gradients in digital manipulation.
From Gabriel’s website :
In search for creative freedom he started experimenting and creating artwork, which eventually led him to explore textiles and embroidery—activities traditionally associated with women and which were forbidden for a boy growing up in Mexico. Because of this, his work is subversive of notions of masculinity and machismo that are so ingrained in his culture. By working with thread and textiles, Dawe’s work has evolved into creating large-scale installations with thread, creating environments that deal with notions of social constructions and their relation to evolutionary theory and the self-organizing force of nature.
