Sarah, one of our EAC Interns, writes about her first day at the Evanston Art Center, and her favorite artwork on display in the gallery:
Upon walking through the gallery space, one of the pieces that stuck out to me was Olea Nova’s Model 1. This sculpture is constructed out of plexiglass, wire, metal, plastic, and lights that shine upward onto the sculpture. Nova was able to make these contrasting materials work together in the sculpture, while still displaying how different each of them are on their own. The way that the sculpture shows movement and disorder mirrors the way her paintings show contrast with the colors that she uses. I really love the use of asymmetry in the sculpture, and how the different materials each stick out on their own. The use of light in the sculpture adds another dimension to the organized chaos.
