Description
A series of dark and richly worked etchings in which Walker translates excerpts of a poem by Baudelaire into a visual form. Combining her characteristically idiosyncratic figuration with the depiction of sometimes esoteric objects, she depicts the narrative in a highly personal although symbolic way.
