Organized with meticulous precision, Gabriel Dawe's architecturally scaled weavings result in three-dimensional patterns often mistaken for fleeting rays of light or prisms. Consisting of miles of multicolored thread, the material and vivid colors in his ongoing Plexus series recall the embroideries employed in the artist's home country, Mexico. Plexus No. 38 alters our understanding of sewing thread-the core component of clothing-that no longer shelters the human body, but instead fashions a nonphysical, sensory structure.
