ABOUT SELIA

Selia Salzsieder is a multidisciplinary artist based in Madison, WI. 

Through my art, I attempt to discover what qualities are necessary for a body to be considered “good” or “attractive” or “desirable.” My artwork explore concepts of body image, sexuality, censorship, gender, and how bodies interact with each other and the gaze. I am especially interested in how bodies that don't fit societal norms of beauty (non-thin, non-white, etc.) exist in these cultural spaces. Collage, and other predominantly two dimensional multimedia work are my main focus.
