Victoria Selbach is a contemporary New York painter best known for her powerful life-size nude depictions of women caught at the intersection of light and shadow. Selbach’s gaze is directed through a deep connection to the women who bring their complex identity into the moment, and carry their unique strength and presence into the painting.

The complexity of light surrounding and emanating from the subject is investigated through a unique approach to seeing and painting, one that involves breaking down the light into layers of color and restructuring them, one pigment at a time, in multiple layers, to create her signature luminous glow and pools of rich shadow.
