Unconditional Commitment to Sacred Love - 2012 - V1 Gallery (Copenhagen DK)
A group of wooden sculptures, composed of birch plywood and brass hinges, fold photographic images across their surfaces. Stoneʼs photos of entangled limbs become a texture on the surface grain of the wood along with images of veined marble and cloud-strewn skies. A series of wall based works on oak, walnut and beech veneered MDF, similarly combine the natural, the industrial and the digital to create romantic depictions of bodies in unison. Here Stone has re-photographed his own images, draped as fabric and created new works that occupy a space between dimensions. His beautiful and formal works are evidence of a living and social sculptural process that addresses culture as a whole. His title ʻUnconditional Commitment to Sacred Loveʼ forms a micro manifesto expressing his sincere belief in artʼs potential to connect and illuminate.
