“Introducing Gabriel Dawe” – Plexus No. 10: Materialising the Structure of Light.
Gabriel Dawe’s large-scale structures using a network of threads shows the spectrum of colours visible when a ray of white light is shone through a prism. I found his installation rather inviting as you walked through the guided paths of disorienting colour and line. Dawe’s use of thread within his work is very controversal as it rebels against the traditional perceptions of “women’s work”.
I had a feeling of peace and serenity as I walked through Dawe’s exhibition. The smooth flowing lines created by the threads made it a very tranquil environment.
