Renowned sculptor Jerry Wingren harnesses light and texture with the grace of a master and spirit of a monk. Residing on a mountaintop, this child of the North Pacific finds inspiration in 3-5-9 Korean numerology, and casts his resting stones in a manner sure to win admirers of contemporary Korean design.
The stones’ inner square allows the viewer to see within and beyond—employing both the Japanese ma, or negative space, and the Korean mieum, a character of basic sound and life's essence. Inclined to naturalism, Wingren creates bold, contemplative, contemporary—yet timeless—works.
