It’s Showering Rainbows!

It’s not often that we get completely blown away by new and original art but we did after seeing Gabriel Dawe’s work. Back in November 2010, Dawe stunned us with his gorgeous rainbow thread installations. Since then, the Mexico City-born artist has been busy, exhibiting at the Pump Projects in Austin for the Texas Biennial, at Centraltrak in Dallas and at Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art (HVCCA) in upstate New York. For his Dallas and New York shows, Dawe changed it up a bit by creating some showering rainbows!

In addition to the above shots, Dawe sent us these photos of what he does with the thread after the shows are finished. “Once they come down, I put the thread in plexiglass boxes and they become some sort of relic.” Dawe says. “People have had a good response to them, specially when they learn they used to be installations.”

If you’d like to see one of these beautiful installations in person, Dawe’s HVCCA pieces will be showing until July 24, 2011. Click here for more details.
