Michelle Segre: Sectional Planes and Driftloaves

 

The Rosenwald-Wolf Gallery of the University of the Arts is pleased to present the Philadelphia one-person premier of New York sculptor Michelle Segre.

 

Segre’s organic works are an eclectic amalgam of new age naturalism joined with Arte Povera. In her early work, she constructed large-scale naturalistic enlargements of mushrooms and of bones, perhaps sharing a kinship with Nancy Graves or Roxy Paine. These conceptual structures, however, were only the starting point; she now creates   monoliths of assembled allusions, chimeras of consciousness, exploring various biomorphic iconographies, mycelia exploding into open fiber or wire webs. Space is punctuated and punctured, wire is used as line, threads connect objects suspended in space. She works with illusion and radically eclectic materials: papier mậché, driftwood, loaves of bread, mold, fungus – references that spiral outward into the world with nonlinear, psychedelic abandon. We notice analogies to Native American God’s Eyes and macramé, her fiberworks like Faith Wilding and Annette Messanger. Her use of bright color harks back to Yves Klein and forward to Franz West. Although this color might initially seem playful, a closer examination points to issues of life, death and transcendence: ways of sustaining a soulful artistic practice.

Civitella Ranieri Foundation Fellow 2016

2016

Artists require unfettered time and space to engage in their work and the world. Building on the legacy of our founder, Ursula Corning, the Civitella Ranieri Foundation opens the doors of its 15th century castle in rural Umbria annually for four six-week residency sessions of self-directed studio and work time. Each residency community brings together accomplished international artists, writers, and composers at emerging and established moments in their careers. They are joined by a limited number of invited Director’s Guests to foster a robust contemporary dialogue that transcends disciplines and geography.
