Man-Made Rainbow Will Have You Wondering How They Did It…

Dawe specializes in mixed media and installations made out of colored threads. As a result, the threads look like light beams bouncing around confined spaces.

Most rainbows appear shortly after rain has occurred except this rainbow.

The Great Gallery of Toledo Museum of Art, Ohio, is typically filled with classic art pieces from decades and even hundreds of years ago. Recently, however, the gallery has been blessed with a new refreshing art installation by Mexican-born artist, Gabriel Dawe.

Dawe has created an amazing man-made rainbow and placed it right in the middle of the gallery. How did he do it? By connecting and intertwining thousands of multicolored threads with each other.

This one is his most recent installation, titled "Plexus no. 35," which will be in the Toledo Museum of Art's Great Gallery until January 22nd, 2017.

The installation's brightly colored composition contrasts the surrounding rich shades in the classic paintings of old masters.

"Plexus no. 35" was site-specific work that was designed specifically for Toledo Museum of Art.
