I am but dust and ashes, for my sake the world was created

JCC Kaufmann Building • 5738 Darlington Road, Squirrel Hill

I am but dust and ashes, for my sake the world was created includes recent large-scale paintings by Segal. His compositions, derived from NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope, suggest prismatic landscapes or wildly chromatic abstract compositions.
Segal aims for viewers to lose themselves in his compositions of cosmic vapors, yet he hopes to spark reflection about our human responsibilities to our physical environment and Earth’s sustainability.

Considering the 17th-century Jewish teaching asserting that we are cosmically insignificant and yet we each hold greatness in the world, Segal’s images implore us to contemplate how we walk through the earth.

Paintings are available for purchase, with proceeds supporting the American Jewish Museum.
