Artist Statement

The idea for the crumpled wooden frame in Smoothing came from my reflections on the negligibility of a piece of paper.

The glass of a picture frame is supposed to be invisible. But The deformed glass by slumping turns telltale sign in mutability by the direction of light, interrupts the audience’s view. Strange paradox and reversion occurs here. The title ‘smoothing’ implies that the thing used to be more crumpled.
