Will Barras – 2 Car Cortex
C/ de la Carassa 4
Will Barras' solo show at Fousion Gallery Barcelona – 2 Car Cortex
"At the bottom of my mums garden is a 2 car garage, which my dad built in 1978. When I was a kid I used to spend a lot of time down there watching my dad building a car, and in the subsequent years working on it, and modifiying it. Unfortunately I didn't manage to adsorb much of his engineering or mechanical knowledge. Instead I spent my time drawing racing cars. 36 years later and the garage is still there, the car is gone, now it's just a store room. I've been back there drawing and painting. Now I'm in the age my dad was when he built his car. My boy is outside, making mud pies, the same age I was when the garage was built. There are so many ideas and memories wrapped up in there. It draws me back to a time when I would just draw for fun, just to play and imagine what might be in the future. Its a time machine made of breezeblocks with a felt roof."
