Suspended Death Sculptures
Daphne Wright Depicts Guilt and Sympathy in Her New Collection

By: Andrew Robertson (Star) Apr 21, 12

Captivating an audience through depictions of the morose, this collection of animal sculptures by Daphne Wright uses life-sized casts of animals in order to stimulate the mind with morbidity. 

There is nothing unnatural about dying animals, in fact, one could argue that nothing is more natural than death. However, looking at these sculptures of suspended decay, one can’t help but infer that the connotations surrounding the subject’s demise is somehow abnormal or even freakish. The lifelike representation of something established as a molded work of art creates an uneasy relationship between the audience and the sculpture, as if the viewer is somehow responsible for what they are witnessing.

One can’t help but feel a slight sense of guilt and sympathy when looking at these wonderfully evocative sculptures by an extremely talented artist.
