Erik Sommer is a New York City based contemporary artist, originally from Minnesota, whose work is a conversation between age and beauty, capturing the passing of time through the deterioration of texture. Using the combination of cement on a canvas surface, Sommer has been able to create unique, one of a kind art works. These current pieces resemble a dried out, decayed wall that has been weathered and etched out. You can see more of his works online here at Rooster.
