Seltzer’s paintings interpret ancient figures and symbols of myth and magic from several cultures and religions: Pharaohs and pagans, bejeweled and bedecked with fabric raiment. Snakes and chalices, falcon-formed Horus, and a Christlike tinker. Abraham and Isaac. Dejected angels and forlorn saints. Anubis, god of the dead. Deities of India in anatomical detail alongside naked, buff knights of the Crusades and human-size cats like the rain goddess Tefnut.
Seltzer’s influences include the emotion-laden Symbolism movement and the pre-beatnik graphics of German Expressionism. She studied artists Gustave Moreau and Aleister Crowley, and author Joséphin Péladan. Around the end of the 19th century, a group of such artists, occultists and Edwardians fixated on Egypt and the east.
