Massive gallery installation shows through March 18

INDIANAPOLIS — If it looks like a giant toddler has run amuck in UIndy’s Christel DeHaan Fine Arts Center Gallery, the responsibility lies with artists Rachel Hellmann and Jennifer Caine.
Their two-story, site-specific installation Continuum is on display through March 18 in the gallery at the University of Indianapolis, 1400 E. Hanna. Ave.
Colleagues for a decade and collaborators since 2013, Hellmann of Terre Haute and Caine of New Hampshire say the work was designed to evoke “a sense of play and visual mystery.”
Continuum consists of 13 wooden cubes, each 36 inches square and wrapped in black roofing paper. The blocks are painted in grays, blacks and touches of more vibrant color, with tick marks intended to convey the passage of time and the labor of the creative process.
Admission is free to the DeHaan Center Gallery, which is open 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. weekdays. More information is available at or (317) 788-3253.
