A . W. Sommers’ surreal paintings are created using gouache with mixed media on paper. Sommers is a self-taught Brooklyn-based artist and has been exhibited in many group and solo exhibitions.
“I am an inveterate magpie: images, histories, phrases, shiny bits, trash, old papers, hair trimmings, rusty things, bones, and dust all find their way into my studio to be considered, mulled about, chewed upon, and channeled into new work.
As a result, my work is manifold: I make paintings, drawings, books, sculptures, miniatures, and assemblages. I slip tiny paintings into matchboxes and draw on bones. All pathways of making are fair game.”
