Allison Sommers creates what I call “artistic anatomical animal studies” (and so much more).


I love how she uses these hinged panels; it works wonderfully with her style.


Some might find this morbid, but I find it beautiful. There is a delicacy and flow to her work that make raw, exposed anatomy appear elegant.

    Lovely symmetry. I, too, like the hinged panels. The shaped one of the two dogs certainly helps make it a bit more fun. As a feline amorist, I am gladdened to see the tables turned on hounds (another way to skin a cat indeed!)

  2. Well it’s different. I’m not so much for the mutilated look of a dog, or pets, or any animal really, or at least this artwork in particular. I agree with Bettie, I’m glad it’s not cats, especially black cats. And I do like the hinge frames. Although I do prefer the skeletons come to think of it. Is it wrong I have no problem with mutilated people?… artwork that is.

      I actually don’t see it as mutilation…I see it as a kind of celebratory deconstruction, glorifying the stunning inner workings of these animals. I feel reverence when I look at these creatures. But we all bring our own eye to art.
