Margo Selski

Artist Statement

"Although, my work appears to inhabit anachronistic worlds and resemble 19th century societal portraiture, it is intensely autobiographical and discreetly veiling my Southern Gothic childhood.  I deal with the tension between extremes in order to fulfill an unbending wish for love, certainty and permanence."
