Isabel Oleas-Mogollón is an independent scholar of the history of Spanish American art and visual and material culture with an emphasis in the Audiencia of Quito. Her scholarly work focuses on post-colonial theory, religious patronage, and gender and has been published in Religion and the Arts, Latin American and Latinx Visual Culture, and Hemisphere: Visual Cultures of the Americas. She is currently working on her first book project, Imperial Power and Christian Triumph, which examines the agency of reflective surfaces and their function in shaping imperial discourses, supporting institutional agendas, and in structuring private and public religious expressions. Besides providing an overview of eighteenth-century Andean religious visual culture and its reliance on reflective surfaces, the book argues that reflective surfaces enhanced the devotees’ emotional connection with Christian images and prompted curated forms of spiritual development and social interaction.
