Allison Sommers: Annunciation

by JL SchnabelPosted on

Artist Allison Sommers, who composes miraculous miniature paintings on paper (see our interview here), has just completed her first hand-bound and painted book. The book, Annunciation, was inspired by a trip to the New York Book Art Fair this past fall. The narratives carefully stowed within its pages follows Sommers’ signature style of tiny imaginative creatures. The characters are usually depicted forging lives in the crowded wild and hoarding objects of lust, such as meat and musical instruments, within their homes or even inside their plump bodies. The creatures in the book seem to have journeyed a bit outside their familiar, ‘civilized’ landscapes and find themselves amongst gelatinous plant and sea life.
