Big Car Gallery
With three quarts of house paint and two bundles of yarn, Tré Reising set out to transform the 2-D walls of Big Car by giving them the illusion of containing 3-D space. Reising is a recent Herron grad whose medium is sculpture so his goal is understandable. Both the strings as well as the paint are in basic reds, yellow, blues, and greens - the colors of playground equipment and Astroturf. In creating the illusion of space with strings of yarn - glued to the wall - converging at non-right angles, he recalls the playground sets that he enjoyed as a child. Interspersed on the walls between the lines of yarn are red circles, a green trapezoid, and various abstract doodlings. It can get crowded in the Big Car Gallery at times - and loud, with the various musical acts playing there - and by creating the illusion of more space within this space in a playful fashion, Reising creates a perfect mind-expanding space for a night out in Fountain Square.
