Sumi Nakazato, New York, NY
While living in Tokyo in her mid 20’s, Sumi studied avant-garde Japanese calligraphy while engaging in the Japanese Contemporary Art. Through this milieu, she met and married her husband who was a Japanese artist living in New York. She returned to New York to spend 24 years as his muse until his death in 2010.
Necklace making with beads is a medium Sumi began to explore in late 2012. Her knowledge of art and experience with the creative process over the years has catapulted her own expression. She explores art history and cultural expressions and imagery conjured by the beads into series.
