Flesh & Bone, The Art of A. W. Sommers

Posted by Justin Meyers on

Rylands diptych, gouache with mixed media and collage on paper.

Allison Sommers is a self-taught visual artist working primarily in gouache on paper. The Brooklyn-based artist creates complicated, intricate, sometimes uncomfortable worlds of meat, vegetation, birds and beasts of various sizes. The artist describers herself as an Art worker, flaneur and vulgarist.  Sommers uses warm vibrant hues on paper to create her bizarre creatures and unravelling organs.
