“Go, Daphne, Go!” is a wood sculpture that pays homage to Guenter Brus’s “No, Daphne, No.” Carved from a single log of Cedar, it portrays a contemporary woman with grace and strength. She wears modern attire, embodying women’s resilience today. Branches sprout from her body with intricate detail, symbolizing both her organic connection to nature and her personal growth. This sculpture reimagines Daphne’s transformation into a laurel tree as a metaphor for modern women’s empowerment, inviting viewers to reflect on the evolution of identity and the enduring relevance of myth in our lives. It’s a compelling fusion of art, mythology, and contemporary themes.
