When I came across a photo of artist Gabriel Dawe‘s work, I had no idea what I was looking at. Using only thread, wood and nails, Dawe creates these masterpieces of optical illustion…
His painstaking installations are completely different from every angle, creating different patterns and colours based on your point of view. According to his website:
By working with thread and textiles, Dawe’s work has evolved into creating large-scale installations with thread, creating environments that deal with notions of social constructions and their relation to evolutionary theory and the self-organizing force of nature.
Dawe also does art pieces where he meticulously embroiders used clothing. Without the unfinished threads dangling down, you’d have no idea it was done by hand.
If you are interested in embroidery, textile art or modern art in general, you definitely want to spend some time perusing Gabriel Dawe’s website!
