Shift represents my new form in my own perfection after my metamorphosis. I have transformed myself into a perfect being I call Flux. He’s my alter ego who represents everything I want to be as a person. As Flux, I am now sitting on a throne being more superior than everyone. Looking down at other flawed human beings passing by, I long for my true inferior self. I decide to abandon my perfect form and changes back to my old self. However, the desire for perfection emerges once again and the cycle endlessly continues in a state of flux.This piece expresses the perpetual paradox of my existence. Even if one day I can successfully change myself into a perfect person I want to be, i will long for my true self and transform back. My hidden desire to be perfect remains. Once again, I will cast my ‘shadow’ and the metamorphosis of Flux endlessly continues. (artist statement)
