Materialising the Structure of Light centres around a new commission from the artist's awe-inspiring Plexus series. Having just wrapped Plexus No. 9 at PEEL Gallery in Houston, Dawe creates his most ambitious effort yet with Plexus No. 10. Developing out of the artist's practice of embroidering on clothing, and inspired by the traditional richly hued embroidery of his native Mexico, the Plexus installations use colour to dazzling effect. Utilising rainbow hued Gütterman thread to produce a disorientating effect reminiscent of Op Art, the installation will transform the entire Main Gallery. Giant veils of shimmering colour and line, stretching from floor to ceiling, will create an immersive environment which visitors will be invited to walk through, experience, and contemplate.
This installation makes the intangible visible, giving form to structures which exist at the very edges of our comprehension.
