One Word Sunday: Stripes at the Renwick

Last year we visited The Renwick Art Museum, an extension of the Smithsonian, in Washington DC. One of the exhibits was by Gabriel Dawe, a textile artist originally from Mexico City.

Dawe’s architecturally scaled weavings are often mistaken for fleeting rays of light. It is an appropriate trick of the eye, as the artist was inspired to use thread in this fashion by memories of the skies above Mexico City and East Texas, his childhood and current homes, respectively. The material and vivid colors also recall the embroideries everywhere in production during Dawe’s upbringing.
