Originally born in Mexico, Gabriel Dawe has always had a fascination with the intensity of colours that surrounded him in his birthplace. Using nothing but thread pulled taut over and over again, Gabriel has created these large-scale installations that are utterly brilliant. Being a young boy growing up in Mexico, the notion of textiles and thread was often thought to be an activity based solely for women, and thus forbidden for men. Gabriel challenges these social constructions with his installations and the result is mind-blowingly beautiful. The depth, movement, colour and attention to detail in his pieces creates what I think is fair to call a masterpiece.
