Belying the the stereotype Virgin/Vixen duality of females, Rapture is the sculptural reinterpretation of an earlier drawing, Punk Madonna (1981). She flaunts her fiery heart with kinetic neon, and signals off-limits but seductive territory with the “Rapture” logo of a Los Angeles area low-rider club.
