In recent work, there’s an ever-evolving horror and beauty in the paintings of Allison Sommers. Pieces created for shows at galleries across the U.S. range in size and subjects. Below, see how she’s recently depicted an unraveling canine, the human body, and other bits and organs worthy of close observation.
Sommers’ bio resembles her work’s multi-faceted conglomerates: “ATELIERBETRIEBE: An art-working studio. A factory of non-commodity manufacture. An ethic of both work and art. Pink viscera, heroic dogs, dougb’hoys, awarded pigeons, chromosomes, phosgene beds, war detritus, improved faces, off-label pharmaceuticals, barnacled crabs, frustrated nostalgia, embedded nothings, red baring, the flaying of Antinous. Fish heads. Cornucopia clams.”
