During the year-long Rolls-Royce commission, Rankin has captured 100  images inspired by the Spirit of Ecstasy, the figurine famed for its  prominent and defining position on the bonnet of every Rolls-Royce.  The project offered Rankin full artistic licence to create a modern  and very personal interpretation of the legendary ‘flying  lady’, with spectacular results.

Rankin’s exploration of the contemporary Spirit of Ecstasy  incorporates a variety of themes: power, the beauty of age, intrigue  and mystery, speed and whirlwind blend with materials, fabrics and  paint to create a stunning array of photographic portraits, with  global appeal. The work features women of a range of ages and  cultures, each chosen for their symbolic representation of the  femininity, grace and mystery of the Spirit of Ecstasy.

On 17 November 2011, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars will host an exclusive  Spirit of Ecstasy reception at the Rankin Gallery in Los Angeles,  attended by Rankin, media and VIP guests. The exhibition will feature  80 of the full set of 100 portraits, with a further selection  available to view at the Rolls-Royce Motor Cars stand at the Los  Angeles Auto Show on 18 – 27 November 2011.
