Maura Segal’s Mid Century Modern inspired work is abstract and multi-layered. It is made with papers and acrylic paint. She is deeply inspired by the Los Angeles landscape and lifestyle, from the sun-drenched plants to the bustling network of intertwining urban roads and intersections. She feels a relationship between these coexisting elements reflected in the juxtaposition of dense, geometric paper forms and the free, expressive and rhythmic lines.
These multi-layered artworks combine acrylic paint and carefully selected papers, new and antique. The papers are cut into thin strips and other geometric and organic shapes, resulting in a complex universe of balance, texture, color and vibrant rhythms, emulating their coexistence in the urban landscape.
Segal’s work is in many private and public collections including the Martin Luther King Jr. Hospital, Los Angeles and the Albamarie facility in Charlotte, North Carolina.
She has a lifelong interest in art and received her BA from California State University.
