Gabriel Dawe the Mexican artist was raised in the colorful culture of Mexico that in the same time restricted him from exploring it and presenting it by art as it was seen as a feminine thing and not appropriate for men.

He then had the freedom of art expression when he moved to Canada. Still influenced by his culture, he decided to get deeper into his passion as he started experimenting via artwork knowing more about textiles. One of his most magnificent art works is” thread installations”.

These colorful threads act as translucent and vulnerable walls in the space. However, they leave a strong impact of joy .It feels like there is a spray of colors in the form of linear sheets in the space giving visual experience close to a rainbow.

So, technically, it’s a rainbow of colored threads. Zooming out of the space, these rainbow sheets seem to be dancing. You don’t see the separate threads but you see the flow of colors shaping in a certain form in the space.  An invisible body in a visible cover!
