In Search of the Magnificent

Susan Seddon Boulet (1941—1997) is a favorite artist in my pantheon of elysian pictorialists.

She has been described as having lived life in search of the magnificent. Her work was deeply personal, much of it feministic in nature, yet resonating with those of both genders seeking spiritual enlightenment — her mythologic work "becoming renowned for fantastical creatures that rise from the misty land of dreams . . . exploring the mysterious inner world of spiritual symbols and archetypes."

Sphinx Noir — 1981
