Agi CHEN’s Being impersonal_Sumikko Gurashi and Sumikko Gurashi series hark back at her dorm filled with plushies back in graduate school. She stuffs hundreds of Sumikko characters into vacuum bags, draining the air to reveal abstract colors. Colorful circles have taken her around the world. Now, these fascinating characters are becoming her signature circles. Like an explorer collecting memories along life’s journey, these modern Sumikko characters summon her conviction all along—the purity of simplification.
