Rainbow is a fascinating natural phenomenon, which has inspired many artists for their new creations. With years passing artists and designers have used new approaches to using rainbow color sequence in their masterpieces – they used new materials, paints or even high-tech digital instruments. But Dallas-based artist have come up with a new, unseen before method of recreating the details of a rainbow, even if you look at it up close. Gabriel Dawe uses hundreds of colored threats to make miniature rainbows and places them in well illuminated places. One of the best examples of his plexus art series is at installation in the 19th century neoclassic house, called Villa Olmo. This art project played a vital part of an art exhibition in Como, Italy, in the video “Rainbow string art installation & plexus SERIES by Gabriel Dawe“, below:

His works create a hypnotic and dizzying effect, which beckons the viewer to engage in a deeper exploration of the form, its tactile qualities, and the relationship of color and light, in the video “Zadok Gallery presents Gabriel Dawe installing Plexus 22“
