Daphne Series

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The Daphne series are inspired by the Greek myth of the nymph who turned into a laurel tree to escape the advances Apollo. Unlike the classic depictions of Daphne which show the outer transformation of the woman into a tree, I focus on the inner transformation, the moment of unity between human being and nature, when the human is enthralled by the serenity and harmony of the inanimate, while the tree, suddenly endowed with a human soul discovers the agonies and ecstasies of love, hatred and sense of mortality.
