Assaf Evron’s art exhibit is part of The State of the Art of Architecture art exhibition that began on Oct. 3, 2015, and which will end on Jan. 3, 2016. His work, which is in Chicago’s, historical Water Tower (The Old Water Tower opened in 1869.) at 806 N. Michigan Avenue, consists of five pieces.
Assaf Evron has a MFA degree. His work is titled Athens & Oraibi. His works are on all of the Water Tower’s, inner walls.
The First Composition
Going in a counterclockwise direction upon entering, the first composition, which is on the western wall, consists of one, large, black & white photo and two, wooden- framed pieces. The large photo is approximately 20 in. (h) x 24 in. (w), and depicts a large hill or small mountain. The framed pieces are each approximately 12 in. (h) x 10 in. (w), and depict abstract, angular forms.
The Second Composition
This composition consists of another, large, black & white photo, and one, wooden-framed piece. The photo is the same size as the photo in the previous composition, and the depiction of the hill or mountain appears to be from a different perspective of the aforementioned hill or mountain. The single, framed piece is approximately 14 in. (h) x 11 in. (w), and encloses one form that is angular with horizontal stripes and alternating, slanted, black lines.
The Third Composition
This composition is on the eastern, inner wall along with the previous composition. A large, black & white photo appears, having the same size as the aforementioned photos, but depicting prominent forms at the top of two, small mountains or large hills. Two, wooden-framed pieces overlay the black & white photo with each frame measuring approximately 12 in. (h) x 10 in. (w). These frames enclose more, angular forms that are less colorful than the frame contents in the first and second compositions.
The Fourth Composition
This composition, which is on the northern wall, also consists of a large, black & white photo and one, wooden-framed object. The photo is approximately 24 in. square, and it shows another, large hill or small mountain. The frame contents closely resemble those in the second composition, and the frame’s size is the same as the one in the second composition.
The Fifth Composition
This composition is on the western, inner wall near the front door. One, wooden-framed piece, which measures approximately 12 in. (h) x 10 in. (w) is in the exact center of the approximately 24 in. square, black & white photo. The photo’s subject perspective and subject is a worm’s-eye view of another large hill or small mountain. The framed art consists of angular forms like those in the first composition and those in the third composition.
Assaf Evron’s photos have the Naturalism Style. Depictions of these large hills or small mountains do not include humans or animals. Various perspectives do not cause eyelids to droop.
The objects in his wooden frames have the Abstractionism Style. They have three-dimensional qualities like drop shadows and reflections. In these framed pieces, Assaf Evron artistically uses tints and shades.
The first composition consists of a large, black and white photo and two, wooden and glass, framed pieces. Three-dimensional art overlays two-dimensional art. The two-dimensional pieces are off-center to the left.
Smack dab in the center of the black and white photo is one piece. The photo shows a small mountain or large hill. The wooden and glass, framed art has red as its brightest colors.
Two, wooden and glass-framed pieces are at different heights overlaying the large, black and white photo. The framed pieces display angular forms that have color tints.
The single, wooden and glass-framed piece contrasts sharply with the black and white, large photo that it overlays. It is debatable as to which piece attracts eyes first.
The final composition displays the framed art centered over the large, black and white photo. Forms from at least two of the other, art pieces are framed. Assaf Evron foregoes the common, rectangular format for his photo by presenting it in a square format.
