About Reverse Rapture:

"Like Seuratís Grande Jatte, Rousselís Nouvelles Impressions díAfrique and Steinís Stanzas in Meditation, Dara Wierís Reverse Rapture is a mosaic whose colossal proportions contradict the mundane character of its countless self-contained tesserae. It may not be for the faint of heart—most intense experiences arenít—but those who stay with it will find themselves face to face with a world whose eerily sharp focus suggests recent satellite photographs of Mars. And they will never be the same again."
—John Ashbery
