Allison Sommers currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. She primarily uses gouache and pencil to create most of her art pieces.
Her work ranges from colorful paintings alongside black-and-white drawings to luminous settings that alternate with dark compositions. While certain subjects seem inoffensive enough other are brutally disturbing. Most of them deal with deformed bodies, humanoid monsters, imaginary insects or more often impossible animals. Things are turned inside out, opened up and fragmented into a chromatic crowd of small biological details.
