Geometric painting gets an optical illusion twist with the geometric ceiling painting entitled 'Nine Dancing Triangles' by Felice Varini.

The red-pattered ceiling decor was painted on-site at the Château Chasse-Spleen. The winery is located in Moulis-en-Médoc, France, which is considered part of the Bordeaux region.

The artist has created an optical illusion by painting red panels that seem to dance above the barrels pictured. The 'Dancing' bit is explained by the fact that depending on where you are situated in the space, the piece looks different. As if the shapes above were moving, and waltzing about above the rows of endless barrels.

Varini's work plays with perspective, optical illusions and interior decor. It is fascinating to see the possibilities of the paint art medium, especially when it incorporates a fine Bordeau wine.
