COOPER UNION

Sommre Phillips is a senior studying Graphic Design and Printmaking. She spent most of her time at her arts high school painting. The interdisciplinary nature of the Cooper Union made her realize that her passions are elsewhere. Graphic design became important to her because of the accessibility of the medium. It is her intention that her work be understood and digested by all viewers. This principle applies as well to her printmaking practice, which relies heavily on form and written language, as a way to narrate her family history and her relationship to trauma.
