Maura Segal’s abstract works conjure a delicate simplicity. Blocks of color languidly splay behind thin meandering lines and freeform fluid curves. Yet upon closer investigation, the artist’s focal craftsmanship is revealed by the foundational background textures, intricately hand-cut patterns and strips of paper laid below and atop paint. This concealment of an overall complexity in Segal’s detailed approach is inspired by her love of modern architecture and minimalism; both of which inform her work constructively and aesthetically. Segal has a B.F.A. in Graphic Design from California State University, Northridge. Her work has exhibited throughout the U.S. and is in numerous public and private collections. Segal resides and works in Venice, California.
