We love these incredible Installations by Mexican born Gabriel Dawe. The colours and tones have a strong Ombre feel which we are loving at the moment with strong and vivid saturated colour mixes, blurred and translucent layered effects which subtely shift as you walk around them. From Gabriel’s bio page “In search for creative freedom he started experimenting and creating artwork, which eventually led him to explore textiles and embroidery—activities traditionally associated with women and which were forbidden for a boy growing up in Mexico. Because of this, his work is subversive of notions of masculinity and machismo that are so ingrained in his culture. By working with thread and textiles, Dawe’s work has evolved into creating large-scale installations with thread, creating environments that deal with notions of social constructions and their relation to evolutionary theory and the self-organizing force of nature.” Check out more at gabrieldawe.com
