Margaret Adachi

I am exploring the relationship between media-made cultural icons and our recalled memories of these seminal moments. What defines these episodes as "seminal"? It may not be possible to separate our experience of any event from our recollection of the images associated with it, but it is imperative that we recognize the difference.

Kim Anno

My work is informed by a myriad of Asian and Native American cultures. It transgresses a territory between painting and object. I am also looking to the notion of archetype: the body as mediator: the essential nature of masculinity and femininity, the process of inhale and exhale.

Lucy Arai

I embody the confluence of Japan and America as the daughter of a Japanese mother and a European-American father. The lessons I have learned through my work and living in the West have taught me universal truths about human experiences and relationships. Object-making is a mindful and disciplined process through which I define spirituality and the interconnections between all things.

Bernice Bing

For me, all nature is pure, and purely abstracted; the spiritual union links both the seen and the unseen forms of nature. I would like to think of myself as a disciple of the art of Chinese calligraphy.
