“The Rapture of Death is a philosophical enquiry into the use of deathly imagery in contemporary art. It explores art and also literature, film and history to investigate why fear of death is an intrinsic part of life. This non fiction art book is a protracted, personal and an accessible essay into the meaning of mortal fear and its related symbols, myths, rhapsodies, warnings and curious obsessions.”
