Allison Sommers' Bizzarre World

August 09, 2012



Allison Sommers creates complicated, intricate, uncomfortable worlds of meat, vegetation, and birds and beasts of various sizes. She graduated from the University of Virginia with a BA in History and a concentration in Early Medieval England. Growing up she was constantly surrounded by animals which has lead her to develop a skewed concept of personhood that now extends into her work: humanoid animals, beasts, and even inanimate objects and foods take on an agency and interact with her worlds.
