WILLIAM BOCK exhibits his series of "geo-panels", which portray in vertical constructions the geological history, and the plant and animal life of Florida. “My artwork depicts the geological layers underlying our state and reveals its make-up over the eons”. The artwork is composed of ceramic, Keystone (fossilized coral reef), and mixed media. The subject matter of these pieces extends from the earth's molten core upwards through the sedimentary layers to the sea floor, into the tropical seas, through the atmosphere, and in some cases into space. The artwork is populated by the fossils of Pleistocene creatures that inhabited the waters, and today’s animal and plant life of the region.

KATSUNORI HAMANISHI:  Like the surrealistic paintings of Dali and Magritte, Hamanishi's mezzotints combine nature and abstraction. Few contemporary artists have the time and patience to rock a plate with a mezzotint rocker long enough to produce the velvety black impression so characteristic of the best work. Hamanishi explains: "It is patience that is necessary to produce the jet-black texture peculiar to mezzotint; the foundation of infinite tones from black to white”. This is similar to the grounding of an oil painting before the image is applied. In September 2004 he was honored in a two-man show along withvenerated mezzotint artist Yozo Hamani at the Worchester Art Museum in Massachusetts,  where he presented a demonstration of his techniques. 

YOSHIKATSU TAMEKANE is known for his technical prowess combined with a unique mystical aesthetic and vision. Tamekane is essentially a woodblock printer, but adds texture to his images using calligraphic techniques. His combination of the traditional woodblock techniques with contemporary themes is reflected in his statement:

"I savor the past and also look forward to the future as a time of hope and advancement for the human spirit." 

Born in 1959, Yoshikatsu Tamekane studied at Sokei Academy of Fine Arts in Tokyo. From 1991 to 1994 he lived in Paris while studying art at the Musee d’Orsay, the Louvre and the Centre Pompidou. He is a member of the Japan Print Association and has shown ten consecutive years in the prestigious CWAJ Print Show.  In 2006 his work “A Winter Memory” became part of the permanent collection of the Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens, Delray Beach, Florida
