Rededicated to the proposition…— title lifted from Abraham Lincoln’s historic Gettysburg Address.
“The detail and care with which Somerville constructs each work, alongside the artist's insistence that viewers consider complex and unresolved issues—including prejudice, post-Katrina New Orleans, urban blight, the conditions of migrant workers, and the treatment of Muslims in America after 9/11—create a charged and vital body of work.” – Annie Buckley, Artforum, "Critics' Picks"
