Unicia Buster Artist Statement:
Life itself is an interesting experience, one which I constantly explore. Although another person can relate, each individual life is unique and can only be truly experienced through their own eyes. My art is a reflection of my experiences in life, my observations of the world around me, and my imaginings of a world yet to exist. One series of my art focuses on the societal and cultural impact of African/African American hair and how it speaks specifically to the stories, history, culture and personality of a race of people. Moreover, as I seek to celebrate our hair in my art, we often have to face, conversely, its denigration in society at large. A new series has a concentrated interest in preserving our natural environment and all who live within it; as well as evaluating the role I have played in creating climate change, deforestation, pollution, and greenhouse gas emissions. I enjoy working with many different media and I allow the process to guide my art.
Unicia Buster’s artwork and costumes will be on display at The Lora Robins Library at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden through September 30, 2021.
Monday – Saturday, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
