The Garden of Paradise
The piece has many interesting aspects to it. I chose to focus on the lower left corner. This is a photograph so there is realism in the way it is portrayed. One particularly notable part of it is the vanishing point seen when looking at the black and white squares, they seem to draw the eye upward and to the right. This black and white checkerboard is also a pattern. Patterns are used throughout this piece, including the background text which unifies the work.
