Beautiful textile installation artworks from Mexican artist Gabriel Dawe

_

Originally from Mexico City, Gabriel Dawe creates site-specific installations that explore the connection between fashion and
architecture, and how they relate to the human need for shelter in all
its shapes and forms. His work is centered in the exploration of
textiles, aiming to examine the complicated construction of gender and
identity in his native Mexico and attempting to subvert the notions of
masculinity and machismo prevalent in the present day. His work has been
exhibited in the US, Canada, Belgium, and the UK. After living in
Montreal, Canada for 7 years, he moved to Dallas, Texas, where he
obtained his MFA at the University of Texas at Dallas. For the final two
years of his degree, he was an artist in residence at CentralTrak, the
Artist in Residency program at UTD. His work has been featured in
numerous publications around the world, including Sculpture magazine,
the cover of the 12th edition of Art Fundamentals published by
McGraw-Hill, and in author Tristan Manco’s book Raw + Material = Art .
He is represented by Conduit Gallery in Dallas, and by Lot 10 Gallery in
Brussels.
