Matthew Rachman Gallery presents Linear Motion, Maura Segal’s first solo exhibition at the gallery. Segal’s paintings will be paired with carefully curated modern furniture. The exhibition opens Friday, July 26th with a reception from 6 – 9pm and will continue through September 8th.
Linear Motion features new works by Maura Segal in which she explores a more minimalist aesthetic. Simplifying her palette allows Segal to further refine the intricate lines and layers that comprise her paintings. Segal uses collaged fields of various papers, both new and vintage, to create subtle variations in the background plane. Building upon this transformed canvas, she uses a combination of acrylic paints and masking materials to create composite shapes and negative spaces that draw on organic forms of motion and structure. The process creates a sense of balance, movement, and vibrancy in her work.
Maura Segal’s work is a meditation on her personal quest for order and equilibrium in everyday life. Her meticulous approach to each line, shape, and stroke creates organized chaos and infinite motion in each piece.
