Both series, Rapt Shadow and Rapt Cocoon, began with a play on the words: wrapped and rapture. In the Rapt Shadow series, the model is enveloped in fabric that is reminiscent of the clingy drapery typified in the renowned sculpture, The Winged Victory of Samothrace. The French even coined the term, draperie mouillée, for drapery that looks as if it is wet. The model is not only wrapped, but the pose also exudes feelings of rapture; and the shadows reflect a sense of being deeply engrossed with the figure, reiterating a state of being rapt. Ideally, the shadows help reflect a narrative and are shadows in name only.
