"Triumph of the Name of Jesus" by Giovanni Battista Gaulli, Chiesa del Gesù, Rome

Concept: Ambiguous (soluble); Delay (footprinting); Frames within frames (introducing movement); Frame shape (the 3:2 frame); Quadrilaterals (symmetrical)

Description: The viewer's eye is first captured by the detail and luminosity of the beautiful baroque creation, then the elongated parallelogram shape of the frame-within-a-frame moves the eye upward accentuated by the 3:2 image frame shape. Only finally, at the top of the picture is there a female figure indicating that the framed image is a reflection of the ceiling above.

Title: Taken to Light
