“The Black woman is the most unprotected, unloved woman on earth…
She is the only flower on earth…that grows unwatered.” — Kola Boof

“Oh, How She Blooms! III” is rooted in her interest in the quote by Kola Boof. The symbolism of dried floral, epoxy resin, and portraits is a physical manifestation of her glorification of Black women. These handmade sculptures are a visual representation of her desire to preserve and protect Black women; to keep them blooming infinitely.

“Oh, How She Blooms! III” is featured in the Hall Gallery at the Griffin Museum April 7 through May 1, 2016. An opening reception takes place on May 1, 2016, 4-7:00 PM.

Symone is a California native, residing in Georgia. She currently attends Savannah College of Art and Design in Atlanta, GA seeking her BFA in Photography. “I consider myself an image-maker,” says Walker. My work ranges from effervescent to nostalgic. I enjoy all aspects of documentary and fine art photography and I explore other fine art mediums including sculpture, installation art, and printmaking.”
