Gabriel Dawe

I found Dawe’s work very similar to my own ideas for my sculpture.  Both large-scale sculptures are produced by the intricate layout of thousands of metres of thread.  One difference is that I don’t plan to use a series of different coloured threads.  The focus of my sculpture is on the design created by the threads so multiple colours would detract from this whereas Dawe’s focus is on the creation of a wall of an array of colour.  The use of numerous threads from each hook to gives his structure a solid appearance which is rather inspiring.  I may try to incorporate a similar technique between the entrance and exit archway so that it creates an enclosed feeling within the tunnel.
