From all sides, perforations open the interior of a solid block of stone. The resulting thresholds seem to unfold outward, inviting exploration. The sharp collisions of interior surfaces glow with subtle translucency. This expansive lightness, now contained, imbues a feeling of being within the stone, as both viewer and participant.

Changes in daylight illuminate the tonal variations in the stone and open up the interior volume cleaved into each work, creating an almost architectural presence. By emphasizing the role of chance in the final product-via light, pattern, and hand-worked planes-Wingren pushes a formal exercise in orderly negative space to become an evocative push-and-pull between material and intent.
