excerpt from review by Gary Garrels
     Selvage has succeeded in transforming what must have been a rather bland and homely gallery space into a poetic and complex environment... One cannot proceed without questioning and measuring comprehension and response... Volume and surface are ambiguous. The mind is pushed to clarify physical situations that in some cases can be resolved only by touch or its absence. A decoding of physical construction, however, opens up apprehension of light and shadow that in some cases are as evident as the materials themselves. Not only the house but the viewer as wellis transformed to a ghost as planes are crossed without regard to their seeming substantiality... Rich in formal and metaphorical complexity, Selvage's work is a provocative goad to a reexamination of experience.
