  • Rapture

    James ROPER, The Ecstasy of Amy Reid.
    manchester UNITED KINGDOM

    suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.

    James ROPER: The pursuit of release or transcendence occur most purely within the seemingly opposing natures of religion and ‘sin’. This is dealt with explicitly in my Rapture series in which porn stars shed their carnal bodies giving way to an abstract purity beneath. The idea of release from the material to the spiritual is apparent in many religions as if there were a divine soul trapped in our earthly bodies, this is also analogous to contemporary imagery such as that found in comic books, specifically the way in which Clark Kent, a normal man, sheds his clothes to become a Superman.

      What religion have you looked at to establish your starting point for this exploration? Since you titled it ‘rapture’ Im assuming you’re looking at the Christian belief. If that is the case, your suggestions on purity beneath stands in contrast to what the bible speaks to. And being that the rapture is a biblical teaching, your premise is contradictory.
