When Maura Segal was a child, she loved doing puzzles so much, she
wondered how she could turn it into a career as an adult. Looking
back, Maura realized that finishing a puzzle gave her a sense of order,
of inner-peace, a sense of calm, as if everything made sense, even if
just for a fleeting moment. She still feels exactly the same today, when
finishing a new piece.
Maura Segal is a person content with lifes daily routine. Her work is a
reflection of this seemingly endless cycle of driving down the same
Los Angeles streets, day after day, and observing the scenery: curved
and sloping lines, a network of intertwining pathways, a city in motion.
And the sun-drenched hues of the Southern California palette frame
and anchor these dynamic pathways. The meticulous clean lines and
brushstrokes in her artwork reflect Maura?s pursuit of order and
balance; everything needs to be in its right place. The lines, just like
urban roads, are carefully planned out; an ever changing
infrastructure, an organized chaos. Maura attempts to organize her
world, one artwork at a time.
