Both of the series, Rapt Cocoon and Rapt Shadow, began with a play on the words: wrapped and rapture. Initially, the imagery for Rapt Cocoon was influenced by Egon Schiele’s drawings of himself wrapped in his prison cell blankets while serving a sentence for pornography in the Austrian village of Neulengbach in 1912. However, as the drawings for the series progressed, the figure’s drapery had become less like drapery and more like a cocoon.
