Originally from Bangkok, Thailand, artist Rook Floro currently lives in Birmingham, England. His art investigates ideas of human metamorphosis and particularly the tension between desiring change and appreciating oneself.

This piece, ‘Shadow’, is inspired by Carl Jung’s psychological theory about the shadow. It concerns with the repressed ideas, weakness, and desires of oneself that the conscious mind refuses to acknowledge.

According to Rook, it represents his ‘shadow’ and involves his hidden desires to be different and become perfect in his own right.

Rook’s work reminds me of the steel wire sculptures of Tomohiro Inaba.
