“Victoria Salzman takes delight in making multi-image prints that overlap into ongoing visual themes that are both inspired and ludicrous. Her expertise with the etching process is clearly evident as her prints have a graphic richness set off by an extremely personal sense of line. She is a master at interweaving visual imagination and literary invention”----Robert Sievert in Artzine Magazine
“Ms. Salzman has the reserves of bile needed for successful satire. This is particularly clear in the black and white etchings, like the one of milling nudes and skeletons…”---Vivian Raynor, The New York Times
