Maura Segal uses her background in graphic design to create mixed media abstract "drawings" . Using cut paper, along with paint on canvas, Segal is inspired by the LA landscape. Roads, hills and intersections intertwine with subtle layers beneath the surface to create energetic compositions. "The papers are cut into thin strips and other geometric and organic shapes. The juxtaposition of paper and paint articulates a universe of balance, texture, movement, and vibrancy."
