Keiko Kasai, a graduate of Miyagi University in Sendai, Japan, is well known for her granite sculptures exhibited in Japan and America, with numerous works in permanent collections around the world. Her new work is a diametric departure from the densest of stone to the lightest of new modern materials.

Mr. Bonzai is a graduate of the University of California at Irvine, where he studied drawing with Via Celmins and David Hockney, sculpture with Tony Delap and John McCracken. An award-winning photographer, he has been creating portraits of the same model for 30 years. This is the first time they have been publicly shown.
