Artist Gabriel Dawe creates awe-inspiring thread art that is seemingly magic. Simply put: he makes rainbows indoors, Known for delicate site-specific installations, the massive pieces span sections of art galleries-but that’s not all! His work also appears in places where anyone can see it, including airports and office buildings. No matter its locale, the stretched thread pieces conjure the same effects: they dazzle with reflected light and send even the most casul passerby into a momentary state of wonder.

Your past really played into the artwork that you’re currently making. Can you briefly describe the influence fot the installations?
