These dark and haunting sculptures by Rook Floro are a reflection of the artist's inner struggles and attempt to define oneself. Commenting on 'Shell,' the sculpture of a figure on all fours with a rip down the back, Rook Floro says, "It is a comment upon how every time a person tries to become someone they are not, they lose their true selves bit by bit leaving behind a part of them."

The sculptures all seem to possess an unnatural animation about them, as if they were a mass of swirling liquid reminiscent of the T1000 from Terminator. Beautifully constructed with a sense of macabre self reflection, these models by Rook Floro are filled with an emotion that many try to keep contained and unexpressed. Here, the repressed becomes the animated. Stats for Mordily Evocative Models Trending: Older & Average
