Susan Seddon Boulet: A Retrospective

$65.00

As a child growing up on a Brazilian farm, Susan Seddon Boulet developed an abiding affection for animals, making them her first artistic subjects and portraying them in colorful, lively sketches. From these simple roots, creating art became central to her life. Boulet developed a unique style, an inspired vision suffused with detail, texture, and color. Her artwork reflects her innermost journey, beginning with fairy tales and evolving into powerful archetypal figures that welled up from what Carl Jung once called “the deepest springs of life.” In the decades since Boulet’s death, her artwork has continued to move and inspire people all over the world. Even as Boulet explored the darker aspects of the psyche in her work and began her long struggle with cancer, she retained the energy, honesty, and warmth that endeared her to so many. This retrospective by Michael Babcock recounts her artistic development and celebrates her extraordinary personal journey.
