Gabriel Dawe: Plexus

Mixed media artist Gabriel Dawe was in Montreal to install the latest of his ongoing Plexus series.  The mesmerizing spectrum of colour was commissioned for a promo for Marie-Pierre Arthur's "Fil de soie"- (a thread of silk, but the wordplay is a bit better in French.)

I checked out the installation in progress just before its completion for the evening vernissage and video shoot.  It is amazing to see in person!

It starts with some thread

It gets passed back and forth

The hooks are not closed, nor permanent, alluding to the temporal nature of the installation
