Biography / Allison Sommers

Allison W. Sommers is a Brooklyn-based artist. The style of techniques is instantly recognisable for her visual artwork, working primarily in gouache. Her artwork is somehow complex, semi-figurative using flesh like colours and images of meat, birds and beasts. Thus making her style and approach quite unique and distinctive. Allison’s works are featured as a part of the opening of URBAN NATION Museum in 2017.

Allison Sommers obtained her BA in History at the University of Virginia but because of her fascination with the art world she taught herself how to paint. Using mainly gouache paint, she spends a lot of time exploring personal individuality and a new personification of a familiar idea in her work. Her appreciation goes deeper; she explores and tries to find how it relates to the tine line of human-ness and animal-ness overlap. She explores and glorifies the human skeletal-body, thus in her paintings she mainly puts motives of dogs and doglike creatures. Apart from painting and drawing she also does sculptures, assemblages, art books, and films. Allison Sommers is truly a unique soul that gives another perspective in the art world.
