The Density of Light is Gabriel Dawe‘s new show at Lot 10 Gallery in Brussels. This Mexican-born artist uses thread to compose large-scale site-specific installations that capture light and define space in brand new ways. White lights allow the full spectrum of colour, as defined by the threads themselves, to fully express their radiance, and the works, which reflect, diffuse and block the light, take an almost ethereal quality, questioning the interplay of positive and negative spaces. Whether you want to invest the works with symbolic meaning is up to you: depending on your sources, you will be treated to diverging theories about their symbolism and be asked to read architectural, social or metaphysical metaphors into the same pieces. We prefer to see them as they are: stunning reminders that simplicity and skill are the soil in which all aesthetic emotions are rooted.
