Mexican artist Gabriel Dawe makes all kinds of wondrous things with basic textiles. His ongoing series, Plexus, is a collection of unique, complex structures that form intricate patterns of color with sewing thread. The artist says he builds the site-specific installations to “explore the connection between fashion and architecture, and how they relate to the human need for shelter in all its shapes and forms.”
In each Plexus installation, thousands of single strands are hooked into walls to collectively form brilliant prisms of color. From rainbow gradients to monochromatic palettes, Dawe explores the organized beauty of the interacting colors.
