Art on a String

Contemporary artist Gabriel Dawe creates grand structures out of rainbow-colored string as part of his site-specific Plexus Series. The way he twists and turns the brightly hued thread gives the illusion of movement and allows the works to transform depending on the lighting and angle viewed. Because of their sheer size and complexity, his installations have the power to stop you in your tracks, captivating you for hours. Although these works were displayed in his current hometown of Dallas, other pieces appear at museums across the country and in Europe. Visit his Web site for information about current and future exhibitions.
