Installations, colors and textiles. These are the three components of Gabriel Dawe’s soul.
His works consist in big site specific installations of color textiles. He called his installations Plexus related to the nervous network of the human body. The word Plexus originates from braid, a Latin’s word, and it defines the branching network of vessels or nerves.
Gabriel Dawe recreated, in his art works, new organisms in which visitors can go inside. These organisms are the same both for women and men without differences. His works, in fact, reflected on the manhood and womanhood, trying to pass the male chauvinism of the modern time. So, the installations become a symbolic mix of nervous network and genus identity.
Next month his new exhibition, The Shape of Light (19.09.2015 – 10.01.2016), will be inaugurate at the Newark Museum in Newark, New Jersey. It will show two big installations, Plexus n.30 and Plexus n.31, which will interact with the architecture of the museum. The Shape of Light will be the biggest exhibition of Gabriel Dawe.
Save the date: September 19, 2015!
