American abstract artist Maura Segal’s work has an interesting mix of simplicity and detail. On the surface they seem as though they consist only of line and shape applied with a paint brush, when in fact as you step forward the lines are placed by hand using strips of paper, Segal also sticks on paper before the painting even commences to create wonderful texture and depth to her work.
Segal’s influence is modern architecture and minimalism. This definitely plays in to this idea of concealing the overall complexity. There’s an amazing purpose in her work that seems so effortless and child-like. When you break down the way Segal makes, it’s not too dissimilar to that of a craftsmen. The time taken, dedication, and application of materials shares so many similarities and we are proud to present her work here in our gallery.
