Southern Fried

I really enjoy work which is created with passion toward its subject matter. Travis Somerville uses a combination of slang, social injustice and stereotypical race-related imagery to depict southern inequality. I don't know Travis, and certainly can't speak about the personal motivations for his work, but as someone who deals with demons in his own work, Somerville's imagery is only a starting point for that which he struggles with internally.
