Maura Segal’s current work focuses on fluid lines within the context of a multilayered ground. A lifelong resident of Los Angeles, she’s been deeply inspired by the surrounding landscape and way of life. From the sun-drenched hues of the southern California palette to the endless network of intertwining urban roads and intersections, her work distills the experience of life in the urban landscape.
Maura works with collaged fields of various papers, both new and vintage, to create the subtle shifts in the background plane. Against this transformed canvas, she uses acrylic paints and masking materials to make composite shapes and negative spaces that draw on organic forms of motion and structure. The process creates a sense of balance, movement, and vibrancy that reflects the personal within the context of the universal.
She received her BA from California State University, Northridge in graphic design.
Maura Segal has works at the Martin Luther King Jr. Community Hospital in Los Angeles, California, the Albamarie facility in Charlotte, North Carolina and in private collections throughout the country.
