"Among the most visually striking works in 'As Subject and Object' are a series of studies for and finished pages from 'Hanukkah Illuminated: A Book of Days' by California-born, Long Island-based Ellen Frank and her studio, Ellen Frank Illumination Arts. Using micrography to create recognizable figures and gold leaf to suggest hand-painted manuscripts, Frank presents finely rendered elements -- birds, soldiers on horseback, architectural elements, a cosmographic rendering -- to illuminate the story of the Israelites' victory over the Seleucid Empire and the miracle of the lamp oil."
